Elanco’s Bovair feed additive approved by FDA

A dairy feed additive that has been available in other countries has been approved by the Food and Drug Administration.

Katie Cook with Elanco Animal Health says they are pleased the FDA completed its review of the safety and effectiveness of 3-nitrooxypropanol, which they sell under the brand name Bovair. “It’s a feed ingredient that you would put within the feed, and feeding one tablespoon of Bovair per lactating dairy cow per day can reduce your methane emissions by about 30% or approximately 1.2 metric tons of carbon dioxide equivalent per year.”

Cook says Bovair is the first meaningful enteric solution available to help producers reach their climate goals.
