Cattleland Feedyards Ltd. Beef Lifecycle Project #1
This project quantifies the reduction of functionally equivalent greenhouse gasses created from operational improvements, implemented after January 1, 2002, that resulted in reduced culling ages of qualifying beef cattle at Cattleland Feedyards Ltd, located in Strathmore Alberta. Greenhouse gas, primarily Methane (CH4) and Nitrous Oxide (N2O), reductions were quantified per unit of beef produced. Quantification is adapted from version 1.2 of the Quantification Protocol for Beef Lifecycle Projects, dated July 2009, from the Alberta Offset System.
