Less burping

Less burping

Livestock contribute 70% of all greenhouse gasses that are produced by the agricultural sector, or 11% of all national emissions in Australia. This is due to the methane that many plant eating animals naturally produce in their gut to break down their food. It is estimated that  25% of the global warming we’re experiencing is a result of methane production.

Cows and sheep are the biggest emitters of methane emissions and although kangaroos are also ruminant animals and emit methane as part of their digestion they emit far less han cows due to their smaller size.
