Letter: Methane emission reductions

The Obama administration recently announced a major initiative to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, including those from cattle. One goal is to cut dairy-sector methane gas emissions by 25 percent by 2020. Especially in the Midwest, it is apparent we have a lot of naughty “Moo-Moos.”

From a dairy farmer perspective and as a practical matter, the president might have better success in achieving his goal if he would concentrate efforts on reducing methane gas emanating from the U.S. Senate office building and the White House.
