Cornell University’s Department of Animal Science unveils groundbreaking animal respiration stalls, a first in the U.S., made possible by collaborations with industry, government, and local farmers. The facility enables research on livestock feed, health, and climate impact, addressing greenhouse gas emissions, particularly methane, a major contributor to global warming. Researchers aim to optimize meat and milk production while minimizing environmental footprint.

Funded partially by the New York State Department of Agriculture and Markets, the facility garners praise for its role in supporting the state’s climate agenda and assisting farmers in reducing methane emissions. Partnerships with industry groups like the Genesee Valley Regional Market Authority underscore the importance of such research in achieving sustainability goals and guiding future agricultural practices. The facility represents a significant step toward understanding and mitigating the environmental impact of livestock farming.
