The idea of this project is that the development and implementation of improved breeding tools help Dutch dairy farmers to better utilize opportunities to reduce methane emissions. This way the suite of mitigation strategies available for farmers can be extended, next to strategies related to nutrition and manure management. 
Aim of this project is to further develop breeding options and to implement breeding as an additional successful option for dairy farmers to reduce the carbon footprint of milk.
