Description:

The Methane Emissions Reduction in Livestock: Research Grants support on-ground trials involving Australian producers to collect data on emissions and productivity impacts from the use of low-emissions feed technologies.

The objectives are to:

  • engage livestock producers and build an evidence-base to support calculation of livestock emissions reductions and productivity outcomes (e.g. dose-responses) in livestock, from the use of feed technologies
  • increase livestock producers’ and service providers’ experience with feed technology products
  • verify claimed productivity and emissions reduction benefits
  • leverage co-investment in technologies that have the potential to reduce livestock emissions
  • support partnerships between producers and industry to advance emissions reduction in livestock.
Eligibility:

To be eligible, you must have an Australian business number (ABN) and be one of the following entities:

  • an entity, incorporated in Australia
  • a co-operative.

Joint applications are acceptable and encouraged. To submit a joint application you must have a lead organisation who is the main driver of the project and is eligible to apply.

We can only accept applications where:

  • the project is supported by your board (or equivalent)
  • you can complete the project and meet any costs of the project not covered by grant funding
  • you certify that you will provide research data and outputs to the department and any nominated third party for developing the emissions framework
  • you declare that you have or will have relevant intellectual property arrangements to undertake your project
  • you provide all mandatory attachments in your application.

We cannot waive the eligibility criteria under any circumstances.

  • an organisation, or your project partner is an organisation, included on the National Redress Scheme’s list of ‘Institutions that have not joined or signified their intent to join the Scheme’
  • an individual
  • an unincorporated association
