Bovine Emissions

Feeding beef cattle a small supplement of red seaweed each day could sharply cut the amount of the greenhouse gas methane that the animals expel into the atmosphere through burps and flatulence, scientists say.

Researchers from the University of California, Davis say that after feeding cows about three ounces of the marine plant per day for 21 weeks, they saw an 80 percent reduction in methane produced by the ruminant animals. The team is working on ways to make it easier to feed the cows seaweed and...
