WA livestock producers, industry stakeholders, researchers and academics gathered at the Frank Mitloehner Public Lecture to hear from the University of California — Davis Professor, who is world-renowned in agriculture methane emissions research. The lecture — New Methane Accounting For Agriculture, held on February 8 at the University of WA Business School in Crawley — was coordinated by the WA Livestock Research Council and the Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development. WALRC chairwoman Bronwyn Clarke welcomed a crowd of 100 to the Wesfarmers Lecture Theatre in a rare opportunity to meet Professor Mitloehner, who has challenged the way methane emissions have been measured. The two-hour lecture, streamed online with more than 100 viewers, stirred some probing questions relating to the agriculture sector. With California agriculture leading the way in carbon credit payments to producers, many lecture attendees hoped the US state’s success would be an example for WA legislation to follow.
