Dairy cattle actually contribute a lot of a greenhouse gas emissions to the environment. The what we do in here is to try to reduce methane emissions from. One of the exciting project that we're working on right now is if a certain type of see we've had actually reduce methane emissions. Nothing is is falling through a an examination process from animals consuming feed and through the process of fermentation that seem to be converted into methane emissions over 95 percent of the methane is actually coming out of the mouth order or the north is of the animals. The device that we use is called green feed and the the way the greeted works is that we provide them with a little ...
