Garlic In Feed Reduces Methane

Provimi are doing research into adding garlic to animal feed to reduce methane emissions apparently, which as we know is all the rage at the moment.

According to researcher Sander van Zijderveld, garlic influences the methane producing bacteria in the rumen. He says that garlic therefore has a positive effect on the energy balance in the animal. "That is logical because when methane is released, energy is lost", he added.

On average, a cow released 400 grams of methane per day. By using feed additives, this can be reduced by 15%.

He sounds interesting doesn't he? Bet it's a laugh a minute in the van Zijderveld household?

The world has truly gone mad.
