Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Canadian scholars have plan to limit methane gas output from belching bovine
National Post [Canada] - 5/15/2009.

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."
