The Wider Image: Sea superfood: Can seaweed help solve Ireland's cow methane problem?
Dr Steven Morrison, Programme Leader in Sustainable Livestock Production at AFBI (Agri-Food and Biosciences Institute) in Northern Ireland, and Professor of Animal Science and Microbiology Sharon Huws at Queens University Belfast (QUB), pose for a photograph in front of dairy cattle at the AFBI (Agri-Food and Biosciences Institute) research farm in Hillsborough, Northern Ireland, October 7, 2021. The dairy cattle are participating in a trial of being fed seaweed to offset methane emissions. "From having an understanding of what the animal's are producing, we then can look at mitigation options - how can we alter diets, how can we look at genetics of the animals, how can we really drive those greenhouse gas emissions down," said Morrison.
