Greenhouse gases (GHG) receive enormous attention due to their detrimental effects on the environment and linkage with climate change. To counter the negative environmental impact of GHG, new production strategies that incorporate sustainability goals and producer risk into breeding programs (Ali et al., 2018), improved diet and feed efficiency (Shreck et al., 2021), and management plans that incorporate life cycle analysis have been proposed (Guyader et al., 2016). A recent report examined the incorporation of wheat by-products into growing swine diets on fiber digestibility and GHG production (Kpogo et al., 2021). The results provide new insight into GHG emissions in nonruminants that may assist with the design of nutrient and life cycle analysis modeling.
