Nutritive options for ruminants, which have been proposed to mitigate methane (CH4) emissions, are used to showcase how decision strategies enable reasonable decision-making in case of various types of uncertainty of information regarding the policy decision problem. Decision strategies concerning the scope of the decision problem and the timing of decision-making provide a systematic structure for deliberation and learning about these types of uncertainty. Regarding nutritive options for ruminants, incompleteness, inherent variability, and unreliability of information about the options, outcomes and stakes involved speak against accepting the proposed list of options and closure of the decision problem. However, the role of CH4 emissions from ruminants in abating global warming speaks against passive postponement of decision-making. Thus, decision strategies to be considered are adapting the list of options and active postponement, or possibly semi-closure, of decision-making.
