Greenhouse gases (GHG) from the livestock sector produced from the enteric fermentation and management of manure in the form of CH4, CO2 and N2O that contributes on the global warming. The contribution of GHG from livestock sector is around 18-51% in the form of anthropogenic GHG. In Indonesia, the contribution of GHG emission from the livestock subsector is around <1.5%, or it is globally around 12% of total world GHG emissions. The aim of this study was to reveal the emission CH4 and N2O gas from beef cow in Jambi Province. The GHG emission was estimated using the IPCC Tier-1 method according to IPCC manual book 2006 in which GHG emission factor was calculated based on dairy cow population in Jambi Province from 2014-2018. The cow population data were taken from the Jambi Province handbook year 2019, while the FE value is taken from the IPCC handbook year 2006. The results of this experiment show that the value of gas emission of CH4 and N2O from beef cow during year 2014-2018 increased 14.17%. Muaro Bungo Regency was the highest gas emission with the percentage of 21.06% and Jambi City was the lowest gas emission with the percentage of 1.71%.
