How to choose the healthiest, most sustainable milk alternative

Scientists agree that the dairy industry has an overall negative affect on the environment. For starters, it takes a lot of land, fertilizer and water to grow food for the cows. It also takes a lot of energy to process raw milk, package it and deliver the goods to supermarkets around the world. Then, there is the fact that cows generate loads of methane, which is more harmful to the environment than carbon dioxide. With the dairy industry disrupting the environment, more people are turning to a...

Why American ranchers are feeding Skittles to their cattle

The next time you bite into a burger, do not be surprised if you taste the rainbow. American farmers have been secretly feeding rejected Skittles to their cows as an alternative to grass or corn. The great Skittles cowspiracy was brought to light after thousands of Red Skittles, bereft of their signature S, were found scattered across a rural road in Wisconsin. The X File was closed relatively quickly as experts asserted that these Skittles were likely en route to a cattle troth. Although Ski...

After the quake killed two people and caused thousands of destructive aft...

The Netherlands will spend 150 million Euros to turn cow poop into biogas

Dutch farmers now have the opportunity to turn cow manure into energy. Turning cow poop into power isn't a new idea, but the Netherlands government is banking on poo being a potent source of power for their country. The country's Ministry of Economic Affairs will spend 150 million Euros, around $166.5 million, on a cow poo to power project. In the Netherlands, the agriculture industry is responsible for 10 percent of the country's greenhouse gas emissions. Methane emanating from dairy farms c...

How seaweed eating super cows will save the world

Methane is 36 times more damaging to the environment than carbon dioxide, and livestock are responsible for emitting 44 percent of the greenhouse gas around the globe. Fortunately, a team of Australian scientists discovered that adding dried seaweed to sheep and cattle feed can cut global methane emissions by 70 percent - which is the equivalent of eliminating India’s nationwide carbon dioxide emissions. Rocky De Nys is a professor of aquaculture at James Cook University (JCU), and he has been ...
