  Cattle contribute to greenhouse gas production in soil

Photo of article As harmless as cattle may seem, they are regarded as a threat to the climate. Through their digestion they produce the green house gas methane, which they expel continuously. Scientists from the Institute of Soil Ecology of the GSF – National Research Centre for Environment and Health in Neuherberg, Germany and Czech colleagues at the Budwies Academy of Sciences have shown that cattle can boost the production of methane gas in soil, particularly during the winter. A German and Czech team claims that when cattle are kept on winter pasture, rather than being confined exclusively to the cowshed, the production of methane in soil increases.
