Solid manure also acts as a source of CH 4 emission. Methane emissions from livestock have two sources, one from enteric fermentation and another from excrement.

The population of cattle and buffaloes and small ruminants is expected to be 2. In this step, the organic N becomes available for plants and microorganisms.

Whole farm models WFMs can reveal relevant interactions between farm components and is useful for integrated scenario development and evaluation.

Nitrous oxide emission from manure management Nitrous oxide is produced from manure by nitrification, denitrification, leaching, volatilization, and runoff. Many of these studies have looked at one section of the production chain in isolation.

Patra [ 24 ].

According to Gill and coworkers [ 57 ], apart from enteric fermentation and manure management, the other sources of GHG emission from livestock and related activities are fossil fuels used during feed and fertilizer production and transport of processed animal products.

However, dry anaerobic management system provides suitable environment for N 2 O production.

IFSM predicts the effect of management scenarios on farm performance, profitability, and environmental pollutants such as nitrate leaching, ammonia volatilization, and phosphorus runoff loss.


Enteric methane emission Worldwide livestock emits around 7. In order to keep the rumen functional and the animal alive, rumen methanogenesis is the primary and thermodynamically efficient way of metabolic H 2 disposal from the rumen, and that is why it is generally regarded as a necessary but wasteful process. This chapter will focus on four main areas: The principal sources of N 2 O are manure and fertilizers used in the production of feed.

The dairy greenhouse gas model DairyGHG is a type of IFSM that was developed to provide an easy to use software tool for estimating GHG emissions and the carbon footprint of dairy production systems [ 64 ]. Manure handled in liquid form tends to release more amount of CH 4 when compared to solid or manures thrown into the pasture, which do not decompose anaerobically. Livestock and climate change from global food security perspectives FAO estimated that million cattle and buffaloes and million small ruminants are being maintained globally.

By far, the most suitable method to quantify individual ruminant animal CH 4 measurement is by using respiration chamber, or calorimetry. The amount of CH 4 produced in solid-state manure management contribute less when compared to liquid state. Therefore, the use of whole farm models, with short-term studies for validation, is an attractive alternative.

According to one study, if current dietary trends increasing global consumption of animal products were to continue, emissions of CH 4 and N 2 O would more than double by from levels [ 14 ]. The majority of the rumen methanogens are hydrogenotrophic, which utilize H 2 as a substrate for methanogenesis. Further, the whole-farm approach ensures that the potential negative trade-offs are taken into account and that positive synergies are identified. In addition, the duration of the storage of waste also influences N 2 O production, 3.


March 30th DOI: Pig production is ar4_syr_apm next major emitter contributing 0. In addition to food, these animals also produce hides and fibers that are utilized by humans.

The tracer can either be isotopic or nonisotopic. This method has been widely used in sheep and cattle. Other sources of GHG emission from livestock and assessent activities are fossil fuels used for associated farm activities, N2O emissions from fertilizer use, CH4 release from the breakdown of fertilizers and from animal manure, and land-use changes for feed production.

In addition, an understanding of the available prediction models and estimation methodology for quantification of GHGs is essential.

The IFSM is a process-based whole farm simulation including major components for soil processes, crop growth, tillage, planting and harvest operations, feed storage, feeding, herd production, manure storage, and economics [ 63 ]. Sulphur hexafluoride SF 6 technique Nonisotopic tracer techniques are also available for measurement of CH 4 production.

Before targeting GHG reduction strategies from enteric fermentation and manure management, it is important to understand the mechanisms of enteric CH 4 emission in livestock, the factors influencing such emission.
