Good Moos: Israel Solving the Problem of….Cow Flatulence

This may sound like bullsh*t, but it isn’t.

An international research team headed by Israeli Professor Itzhak Mizrahi of Ben Gurion University’s Department of Life Sciences and of The National Institute for Biotechnology in the Negev (NIBN), has found that cow genes can be used to control rumen microbiomes in order to reduce the amount of greenhouse gases that animals emit.

The findings have profound implications for dairy and beef farmers trying to reduce their industry’s contribution to climate change as well as bolster dairy producers’ attempts to maintain or improve milk production efficiency while maintaining product safety.

Even though this came out of Israel, I am sure even Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez will be impressed.
