Cows that burp less seen helping in climate fight : Manners aside, getting cows to burp less can help reduce global warming. Using modern plant-breeding methods to find new diets for cows that make them belch less is a way to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

The solution is to make foods that are easier for cattle to digest and also provide a proper balance of fiber, protein and sugar. Scientists are now starting to explore the approach of introducing legumes that easier to digest and thus make the cattles to emit less methane gas. In the meantime, farmers will have to balance legume intake by cows with other food, and work on developing various new species of grass that are also more digestible.

Most of us think methane gets into the atmosphere thought the rear end. But the truth is that methane actually get to the atmosphere through belching.On average, dairy cow belches between 100 to 200 liters of methane every day.

    factory farmed aianmls in general are bad for your health. they are pumped full of antibiotics, hormones and pesticides. many people are becoming antibiotic resistant because of the medication that is put in their food. little girls get their periods when they are 6-7, due to their elevated hormone levels from drinking milk. google image search factory farms and you will see just exactly why your meet is should never eat an animal that is given medication to prevent disease. they should be in an environment where disease does not exist. period.logically, getting rid of factory farms (industrial agriculture) would reduce the carbon footprint made by our nation, more than every person driving hybrids would.
