I can already see that steak on my table. Cows are notorious for their meat, their mass, and their.... gas. A great deal of their methane production happens from their burps interestingly enough. And it is here that scientists are trying to come up with a solutions. Agriculture is one of the largest contributors to greenhouse gas emissions, with a third of that coming from livestock.
In an attempt to stymie the growing emission levels, California has enacted several regulations requiring all dairy farmers to reduce their methane emissions by at least 40% over the next decade. However, researchers at the University of California and the University of the Sunshine Coast looked into a solution in 2018 and 2019 respectively, and just recently came up with several solutions that may get them to those goals much quicker. Two different attempts have been made to solve the issue, with significantly different methodologies.
