The probiotic that’s saving the environment
If you were to draw up a shortlist entitled ‘Things Currently Damaging The Planet’, you’d probably have, say, ‘Donald Trump’, ‘over-population’, ‘pollution’, and so on. What you probably wouldn’t have is ‘Burping and Trumping Cows’.
However, methane from cows is said to be surprisingly harmful to the environment. But help has come in the form of Mootral (really – we’re not making this up), a probiotic for cows which calms bellicose bovine bellies.
The company behind Mootral claims if 40% of the world’s cows (that’s 1.5 billion of the mooing beauties) take Mootral, the reduction in methane would be the same as taking 200 million cars off the road.
And that’s great moos (works better said out loud).
