Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Canadian scholars have plan to limit methane gas output from belching bovine
National Post [Canada] - 5/15/2009.
Canwest News Service – It's the climate-change culprit nobody wants to talk about: cattle gas. Much of the methane emitted in Canada comes not from the oil industry or landfills, but from belching cows. Now, a team of Canadian scholars says it has come up with a plan to cut a cow's output by as much as 25%, by making the animal "more efficient."

Portland Press Herald - 5/13/2009.
By Meredith Goad – When I dropped by to visit with Rob Evans last week, he was chatting on his cell phone with his biggest fan – his mom. She was the first person he called from the Lincoln Center after he won the James Beard Foundation's award for Best Chef: Northeast last week in New York.

Hugo's, the Middle Street restaurant owned by the 45-year-old Evans and his wife and business partner Nancy Pugh, probably will be tough to get into in the coming weeks, at least on the weekends.
