A seaweed feed for cows being trialled by Fonterra has received a $1.3 million boost to its manufacturing. The plant’s production as a food supplement to reduce methane output took out a Food Planet Prize this week. Scientists at the CSIRO began studying the effects of the seaweed after a farmer in Canada reported his cows located closer to the ocean had grown bigger than the rest of his herd.
