Our Purpose .
Reduce smallholder beef and dairy farmer poverty across developing nations.
Improve animal welfare and production while reducing the intensity of methane emissions.
Funded by ethical corporations seeking verified carbon credit solutions for their future.
What We Do .
We have developed unique and tailored medicated nutritional technology supported with holistic small farmer education for their ruminant animals, that improves welfare, accelerates performance, and reduces methane output.
The technology when used under independently verified clean development mechanism(CDM) projects creates certified emissions reduction(CER) credits that ethical corporations can purchase with confidence to help meet their carbon neutral goals of the future.
When these carbon credits are purchased by non farming ethical corporations, it allows us to distribute the technology and education at no charge across small farming communities in developing countries.
Agcotech Closed System Securing Integrity and Traceability for Carbon Offsets .
The distribution of one medicated block will generate 1 AgCoTech Quality Standard Carbon Offset Credit (equivalent to 1 tonne of CO2).
Locally produced .
AgCoTech will produce the blocks in developing countries, using local suppliers and labour. AgCoTech has a 50% female employment target to provide local women with opportunities to work outside of sweatshops.
The produced blocks are then distributed for free to livestock owners in developing countries to improve productivity and social outcomes.
The Results .
Greenhouse gas emissions reduced
The methane (greenhouse gasses) reduction alone could measure in the millions of tonnes (1 tonne of CO2 equivalent per medicated block) a year.
The blocks improve the animal's ability to metabolise their feed much more efficiently, making the most of all available nutrients. Resulting in bigger and healthier animals that produce significantly less methane.
Improved social and community outcomes
Healther animals improve smallholder farm wealth and the production chain employs local people.
All stakeholders along the supply chain benefit. From the animal itself, to the farmers, to the suppliers of the raw materials and to the organisations who are wanting to offset their emissions.
