Effort to feed seaweed to burping cows gets research boost
An effort to mitigate the effects of livestock operations on climate change is getting a boost in the form of a $50,000 research grant.
The Foundation for Food and Agriculture Research is giving the $50,000 grant to Elm Innovations and the University of California, Davis. The money will help pay for an investigation into the potential for cutting methane emissions from dairy cows by including a kind of red seaweed in their diets.

The smelly reality is that cows will always pass gas. But if farmers had more access to seaweed, cow flatulence might just stink a little less for the planet.
That's the thesis of a New England-based aquaculture company which is launching a drive to become the worldwide leader in an emerging effort to thwart climate change by feeding seaweed to cows.
