The proposed new methodology quantifies the emission reductions that comprise the use of enriched feed supplements that are organic or 100% natural (no antibiotics) in beef cattle which reduces fattening time, thereby reducing methane emissions from enteric fermentation. Additionality is demonstrated using an activity penetration method that is geographically limited to Brazil. Projects would be additional until the sale of qualifying feed supplements reaches 5% of the total market for feed supplements in Brazil. Monitoring involves the number of days in pasture compared to a baseline based on published data.
