Methane Testing

On March 2nd and 3rd we Methane tested 120 ram lambs from our TEFRom stud. Agresearch arrived with their methane testing trailer. The trailer can hold and individually test 12 rams at a time. Our rams, from an array of sires, were split into 10 groups of 12 and testing began. The 12 rams were in the trailer for an hour at a time. The photo collage shows (from left) the trailer, a ram in a testing chamber and Russell (front) letting a ram out of the chamber after Andrew from Agresearch (back) has measured the methane emitted by the ram. We look forward to seeing the results once all the analytics have been completed.

The proof is in the progeny
