Overview

MPI seeks to procure a research project to support and extend the work of the Global Research Alliance on Agricultural Greenhouse Gases, specifically its Livestock Research Group. The project title is: “Big Data for Beef and Dairy: understanding the effects of variation in individual animal production on greenhouse gas emissions”

The expected outcomes at the end of this research project are:
 Improved understanding the level and causes of variability in individual animal performance in dairy and beef systems
 Quantification of how individual animal performance influences greenhouse gas emissions per unit of product at the individual and herd level
 Identification of practices and technologies that can be used to reduce the variability in performance of individuals within the herd and while increasing total herd output and reducing greenhouse gas emissions per unit of product
