"English Cow Farts Now To Smell Of Garlic .What a great 'trade off',500 billion liters of methane for 500 billion liters of Garlic Gas ? "

"Can you imaging the Bloody Great Clouds of Garlic Gasses Billowing from the Hind end of These English Dairy Cows.It would smell like Naples during the Great Garlic Pasta Festivals !
..................................
It may give them stinky breath, but according to a small UK company dedicated to reducing greenhouse gas emissions from the livestock industry, feeding cows garlic could cut back on the amount of methane they release into the atmosphere.

Mootral (“moo” plus “neutral”, as in carbon neutral) teamed up with Welsh company Neem Biotech to develop a garlic-based feed additive that reduces cows’ methane emissions by at least 25 percent.

With widespread use, the feed could have a huge effect on lowering greenhouse gas emissions from cows, which are currently responsible for 500 billion liters of methane emitted every day....

Not me.

Garlic in the steaks might be okay.

But if you fed her onions (which she would like), your wife would be angry if your wife makes cheese.

Onions-in wouldn't create "onion-flavored" whatever cheese you make. It would just be bad cheese.

My goats won't eat onions or garlic. I've been pretty lucky. I free range them a lot and they have never eaten anything that flavored the milk. Cows you have to watch a lot closer.

I seriously hope they mean "cattle" and not specifically "cows." A garlic-scented feedlot couldn't be much worse than they already are. :rolleyes:

I think that must be dry Garlic feed.Most of the smell from a dairy is not the cow crap but the corn silage fermentation in the silos.Inside a corn silo on a hot summer day it's almost impossible to breathe with the overpowering smell of the fermenting corn marsh alcohol!

I worked in a dairy after school as a kid cleaning out the troughs and feeding them corn,hay and dry stripping the cows after the machine milkers were done.

Cows are sort of sweet smelling after you have worked with them a while, gentle and dumb .Give them half a chance and they will crush your foot by standing on it and when you are strip milking them they have a habit of whacking you in the face with their crap hardened tails !
