Swiss milk producers’ cooperative Mooh (3,900 members, 1.5m kg milk) is launching a new climate programme in 2022. The feed additive Agolin is intended to reduce the cows’ methane emissions. Producers will be compensated for the additional effort.
The lower methane emissions of the cows are converted into climate certificates through a certified programme. The certificates are sold to finance a surcharge for the participating producers. The reduction of one ton of CO2 equivakent is to be remunerated with 100 francs.
