We help save our planet,

one cow at a time.

There are no shortcuts in the fight against climate change.
Actually, there is one thing…

Methane

the lesser-known greenhouse gas is driving climate change:

+10%

in the past two decades
Methane’s global annual emissions have soared to a record high

12 years

atmospheric lifetime
much shorter than carbon dioxide; therefore, reducing it will significantly affect atmospheric warming potential.

25X

more potent than carbon dioxide
at trapping heat in the atmosphere and the second most abundant greenhouse gas

80X

the warming power
of carbon dioxide over the first 20 years after it reaches the atmosphere

Where does methane come from?

Ruminants account for more than 20% of human-caused methane emissions. The key contributor is cattle with a global population of approximately 1.3 billion - occupying some 24% of the planet’s agricultural surface. At the same time, ruminants have another dramatic impact on our planet - they consume about 30% of the crops grown on earth.

We are here to change it

It’s not too late

Reducing methane emissions is the best opportunity we have to immediately slow down the global warming rate.

OUR MISSION

Reduce Cow-Emission

We aim to reduce methane emissions, use of land and water usage for feeding and improving animal health welfare, by accelerating the shift towards sustainable farming.

Doing more with less.

Our disruptive approach helps dairies produce more high-quality milk, with less resources and methane emissions.

Empowering the
farm of the future.

We create a microbiome prediction and modulation platforms aiming at better feed efficiency, reduced methane emission, better milk composition, animal health and yield.

Triple win impact.

We find creative ways to manage the inherent tensions that emerge between People, Planet, and Profits and build truly synergic win-win solutions.

OUR Approach

We help dairies produce MORE high-quality milk, with LESS resources and LESS methane emissions.

Our Value Proposition

The ability of ruminants to utilize the energy stored in plant biopolymers depends ultimately on the activity of microbial populations residing in their rumen. Hence, these foregut fermenters rely critically on their associated gut microbes to digest their plant feed. Therefore, an efficient rumen microbiome is essential for absorbing more energy from the feed and emitting less methane.

We improve feed conversion and reduce methane emission through Huminn’s novel Convergence Innovation™️ platform. A disruptive, interdisciplinary approach based on the convergence of trailblazing microbiome research and innovative data analytics methodologies.

OUR Solutions

Solutions for the ‘farm of the future’

Trait prediction platform

Based on exclusive methodologies, algorithmic, and computational tools developed in RumenEra Informatics Platform, we can develop an analytic standard for cow rumen diagnostics - as a seamlessly integrated platform for herd and dairy operations.

Microbiome modulation platform

RumenEra’s solution go forward beyond associations of microbes and host traits - by isolating specific components of the microbiome and determining their effect on production and impact on microbiome composition, and finally directly measuring their effect on the animal’s traits.

OUR Impact

Our triple-win impact

We manage the inherent tensions that emerge between People, Planet, and Profits, not by trading off between them, but rather by finding new, creative ways to build truly synergic win-win solutions.

Beyond cows

Microbes are the second largest biomass component of our planet.
But so far, little was known about their significance in our life.

The microbiome is the community of microbes that exists in a particular environment. All people and animals benefit from their own microbiome, which plays a vital role in maintaining their nutritional health and immunity. However, optimizing the microbiome is still challenging because of the great differences between the microbiome and the lack of knowledge on the dominant microbes.

Our trailblazing microbiome research and innovative data analytics methodologies enable us to develop new microbiome modulation platforms that go beyond cows. We are already working on microbiome research in humans and fish to create innovative nutrition solutions, better address key health challenges, and strengthen our immune system.
