Cows targeted in climate change war

We thought that Prof Ross Guano was a bit funny suggesting we do away with cows and start eating kangaroo.

Seems he wasn't the first. The Institute of Grasslands and Environmental Research in Aberystwyth beat him by at least a year. Michael Abberton of the Aberystwyth Institution said, inter alia, that rye grass with a high sugar content shows promise in reducing methane from both ends of the cow.

Dr Abberton said that it has improved milk and meat yield from cattle.
I'm not surprised, a high sugar diet has produced high meat yields or at least high fat content in humans.
