Seaweed Additives for Methane Reduction in Cows

July 02, 2018

Cattle make a major contribution to the methane production on earth and UC Davis Animal Science researcher Ermias Kebreab has been studying for more than a decade on how to reduce those emissions. The article by Judith Lewis Mernit at the Yale School of Forestry & Environmental Studies discusses the findings of Kebreab and how he reduced methane production in a cow by 58% using seaweed. See "How Eating Seaweed Can Help Cows to Belch Less Methane" for more.
