    Bagging Cow Farts? Okay...

    Honest to God, if Global Warming is real then I hope it's even worse then they say it's going to be because I think that mankind is at the zenith of stupid.

    Why?

    This:



    http://www.physorg.com/news135003243.html

    In their study, the researchers attached balloon-like plastic packs to the backs of at least 10 cows. A tube running to the animals´ stomachs collected the gas inside the backpacks, which were then hung from the roof of the corral for analysis.


    The Argentine researchers say that the slow digestive system of the cows causes them to produce these large amounts of methane. Now, the scientists are performing trials of new diets designed to improve the cows´ digestion and reduce global warming. By feeding cows clover and alfalfa instead of grain, "you can reduce methane emissions by 25 percent," according to Silvia Valtorta of the National Council of Scientific and Technical Investigations.

    the bbc motoring show Top Gear did a feature on powering cars on methane from cows and also humans and discovered that the performance was very similar to regular gasoline...so perhaps we should strap these balloons to all cows....just imagine, herds sponsored by exxon!

    Or use it for home heating? Jesus, if cows are farting so much that they are supposedly "Destroying" the ozone, they should be able to heat many, many houses.

    Just a thought.

    There definately is a faction of the scientific community that feels that the methane produced by cows is an environmental hazard.

    if feeding them clover reduces the methane of cow farts, then I want a study to see if feeding pigs flowers makes their poo minty fresh, cause I gotta tell you, out here in the sticks, it's a problem.

    Come on, scientific community...solve a real problem.

    Kinda reminds me of a job when we were taken on a tour of an artificial insemination clinic for cattle. They showed how the semen is stored and all that jazz. Then they showed how the semen is collected. Basically a cow is put in a device that makes it stand still. The bull is then turned loose in the area. If the bull sees a cow standing still, that's a sign for the lovin' to begin. So the bull approahces the cow and places its front legs on top of the count to mount. There's a guy or two who has the catch the bull's pole, place it in a test tube (basically), and the bull climaxes there. This poor guy wore gloves and had to wait until the bull was all the way up. Worst job ever!!!!

    LOL, I've seen the same scenario at Select Sires here in OH when I was working as a software consultant on inventory. They needed to be able to keep track of their specimens/inventory which brought in big money from all over the world. It was a rather memorable day and the guys running the place seemed to get a kick out of showing people the process, I think, for the shock value.
    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply. Speak kindly.

    Actually, I was thinking of mounting some sort of device ala a toilet that could somehow capture my gaseous expenditures in the back of my truck. The night before my truck runs out, eat a can of beans and the next morning, wha-la... full tank. And if I'm on the road and feel the urge, pull over, get up in the bed of my pickup and then I can keep on trucking.

    In no way would I stick a hose up my ass and strap a tank to my back. My ass is an "Exit Only" hole.
