In the future, breeding climate-friendly cows potentially could be accelerated by using genetic information. A recent study in Europe identified areas in the cow’s genotype that are linked to the amount of methane it produces.
Researchers wondered if it would be possible to produce a cow with fewer methane emissions through the means available for breeding. A cow's genotype and feed affect its microbial make-up and function. Microbes in the cow’s intestines and rumen play a key rol
