7 Detailed method (Tier 2) Methane emission due to enteric fermentation in cattle production – dairy cattleDetailed method (Tier 2)Herd of dairy cattle disaggregated into 18 subclasses (from less than 1000 kg of milk to over than 9000 kg of milk yield per year)Theoretical diets were calculated by taking into account animal requirements and quality of local feeds for each individual subclassMethane emissions were calculated on the basis of gross energy intake – methane conversion rate 0.07 for milk yields up to 3000 kg per year and 0.06 for higher yieldsTotal dairy cattle population was distributed to individual subclasses on the basis of data from official milk recording (Cattle Breeding Service) – extrapolated to data published by Statistical Office
8 Methane emission due to enteric fermentation in cattle production – dairy cattle Based on data from period an equation was developed that enables the estimate on the basis of average milk production.Used for suckler cows
9 Detailed method (Tier 2) Methane emission due to enteric fermentation in cattle production – non-dairy cattleDetailed method (Tier 2)Gross energy intake estimated on the basis of animal requirements.Data on total live-weight gain (Statistical Office) distributed to classes of growing cattle (fixed values for heifers).
