This review evaluates the effects of silage characteristics on enteric methane (CH4) emission from ruminants by performing a meta-analysis. A total of 17 studies were selected from the literature, and the relationship between CH4 yield (g/kg dry matter [DM] intake) and silage characteristics was...
