Global Warming Involves Cows and A Wild Flower

I came upon an article where they said that a flower helps in reducing the global warming, through cows. Let's come to the fact which is very interesting to read on.

The Birdsfoot trefoil is being studied by scientists at the Institute of Grassland and Environmental Research in Aberystwyth. According to the scientists, Methane, which is 23 times more powerful than carbon dioxide as a greenhouse gas, is emitted at the prodigious rate of 100 to 200 litres a day by the average dairy cow, mainly from the front end, according to Michael Abberton of the Institute.

Birdsfoot trefoil is a distinctive three-toed yellow flower, containing tannins which appear to moderate the activities of microbes in the cow's gut, enabling the cow to digest the latest generation of high-sugar grasses more efficiently without also breaking down proteins which cause the production of methane.

Usually, cows emit undigested grass as either waste or methane. Using a mixture which includes Birdsfoot trefoil enables the efficiency of the cow's stomach at processing the nitrogen content of grass to be increased to around 34 per cent, he said.

This can have benefits for the farmer in milk production and produce less methane gas and less nitrate pollution in agricultural run-off.
