This Ontario Farmer Says He’s Cutting Emissions One Cow Belch At A Time

On a cold winter’s day, the brown and white cattle munching on hay in the pasture stare, moo and poop like any other. 

But it’s their burps that make them special, says Dave Braden, a small beef farmer in Puslinch, Ont., between Hamilton and Guelph. 

They’re cattle bred to eat about 10 per cent less feed and therefore produce about 10 per cent less methane than the average bovine, he said. That means every time they belch, they’re emitting less of the greenhouse gas into the atmosphere.
