A researcher says livestock farmers should change the way they think about methane.
Dr. Frank Mitloehner from the University of California-Davis says methane escaping from cattle is energy that is escaping the farm. “It costs you money to lose energy, right? Nobody in their right mind would leave the door open or a window open in the winter in Madison, Wisconsin. Guess what? We’re doing the same thing with our cows by allowing them to blow 10% of the energy we feed to those animals out as methane.
