DNA selection may reduce cattle emissions

DNA selection may reduce cattle emissions

Researchers are looking at belching as a way to minimize emissions and maintain efficiency through DNA selection

The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) says 2 billion of the estimated 50 billion tons of greenhouse gases (GHG) emitted annually come from cattle.  Researchers have spent ample time and resources trying to find a solution that would eliminate or minimize the methane cattle emit.
