Climate Alarmists Propose Feeding Cows Seaweed To Lower Methane In Farts
cows livestock beef cattleEnvironmentalists intent on finding new ways to reduce so-called greenhouse gas emissions to curb climate change have proposed a novel method: feed cows seaweed to diminish methane in flatulence, belches, and manure.
Ermias Kebreab, a zoology professor at the University of Californiaâ€“Davis, led a team in producing a bovine meal regimen containing varying levels of Asparagopsis armata, a strain of red seaweed, and fed it to 12 dairy cows over a two-month period.
In a mix containing just 1 percent seaweed, the cowsâ€™ methane emissions went down by a stunning 60 percent.https://climatechangedispatch.com/cows-seaweed-methane-farts/
