Cattle Gas


Human industrial contributions to global warming are well documented in countless scientific research. Studies have also pointed a finger at the methane gas production of farm animals in this country, as well as others, and their impact on global warming. New Zealand’s air quality has always been impacted by the methane gas being released by its massive numbers of sheep. Researchers in Canada have been working on genetically modifying cattle to reduce their cattle’s methane output. The holy grail in Canadian cattle research is finding a gas free cow. In all fairness to the Canadians, they are also working on lowering the feed consumption of cows, to further assist in the reduction of cow gas. But, if a cow eats less and still produces the same amount of milk and meat, that too becomes a contribution to sustainability and farm economics. Not to mention that it might smell nicer on the farm. Obviously as the world’s population grows and the demand for food products continues, the demand for a gas free cow that eats less, could help in providing greater sustenance to the world and lower methane levels. Now if they could only do something about Uncle Jimmy.
