Lifting Smallholder Farmers Incomes Across Developing Nations While Fighting Climate Change

We provide practical help to livestock in developing countries to improve community wellbeing, health and welfare of their animals and reduce greenhouse gases. We make medicated nutritional lick blocks.

AgCoTech's partnership with Australia’s Government Business Partnership Platform

Research undertaken by Emeritus Professor Peter Windsor, School of Veterinary Science at The University of Sydney, with support from DFAT and Australia’s Business Partnership Program BPP, found medicated molasses blocks for livestock can reduce smallholder farmer poverty & fight climate change.

AgCoTech's Closed Loop Carbon Offset Program

Enhancing livelihoods of smallholder farmers in Laos .

Research developed through Australia's Business Partnerships Platform initiative has developed AgCoTech's business model, where medicated molasses blocks are produced locally in Laos and other countries to provide low-cost supplements to smallholder farmers, local employment and drive regional development.

Our Story .

AgCoTech wanted to do more than just offset carbon, believing carbon offset programs should be able to accomplish more than simply planting a tree or generating offsets with no short, medium or long term goals for the rural community.

AgCoTech is committed to supporting local supply chains to reduce transport carbon footprints, provide local employment which lifts poverty, improves animal health and wellbeing and we encourage gender equality in small agricultural hubs.

We focus on animal performance and productivity first, community development from income generated through more resilient livestock production, and then the gains in reduction of carbon emissions.

After many years of research by Sydney University and independent trials all around the world, a patented innovative medicated block technology was developed.

These medicated feed blocks allow ruminants (cattle, buffalo, sheep & goats) to get the maximum nutritional benefit from their feed, resulting in a significant reduction in methane production from the animals and improving their overall health and productivity, which in turn drives higher milk and meat production.

How Can The AgCoTech
Carbon Credit Program Help Your Organisation?

Earn Credits

Every year awareness of climate change and the importance of taking action become more clear. The public is taking note of organisations' impact on the environment.

Meeting or exceeding a carbon zero footprint is a point of difference with your client base.

 

Reduce Emissions

Reduce greenhouse gas emissions in months. Provide jobs for women in countries where sweatshop labour is the only option. Improve the health of animals, farms and children in one program. These are all highly valued and marketable results that maintain your licence to operate.

 

Social Impacts

Our carbon offset program makes a real social impact. Children are fed better, women get opportunities to work for their communities, farmers have healthier cattle and economies grow.
