You can't legislate cows to stop burping, but you can curb methane emissions with cutting edge genomic technology.
For many people, their first brush with DNA was Jurassic Park. Today, areas of life untouched by genetics are rarer than a dinosaur petting zoo. A perfect example is the Genome Alberta project to develop more accurate genomically-enhanced breeding values for traits critical to the commercial cattle industry.
New technology can cut methane emissions from dairy cattle.
