Minimising the risk of nitrite toxicity in ruminants when dietary nitrate is used to mitigate methane emissions

The project Minimising the risk of nitrite toxicity in ruminants when dietary nitrate is used to mitigate methane emissions investigated toxicity risks of using dietary nitrate to decrease methane output in cattle and sheep and aimed to identify knowledge gaps requiring further research.
