Our Mission .
AgCoTech aims to provide more than carbon offsets. We are creating local employment opportunities and economic growth in developing farming communities around the world. By delivering innovative technology that improves animal nutrition and animal welfare - farming communities are able to improve the quality and health of their livestock and make positive environmental contributions.
The Medicated Blocks .
After many years of research supported by Sydney University and independent trials around the world - a patented, innovative, medicated block technology has been developed.
These medicated blocks allow ruminant (cattle, sheep etc) to get the maximum nutritional benefit from from their feed. The blocks improve the ability of livestock to metabolise its feed (including poor quality feed). This results in healthier animals and methane reductions.
AgCoTech Quality Standard Carbon Offset Program .
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.
