Making Cows More Like Cangaroos

The Australian government, along with the meat industry, is investing in a $24 million campaign to reduce cattle burping, which releases methane and contributes to global warming. The objective is to change the ruminants’ diet to make them less gassy. This research is going on at the new $28 million Center for Advanced Animal Science, where scientists are trying to make cows more like kangaroos, in the sense that these animals also eat grass but release virtually no methane.

In order to reduce global warming gases, common sense dictates to reduce the number of cattle, instead of spending million of dollars manipulating these animals. However, profit and taste seem to trump common sense. As stewards of God's Creation we should act according to our Faith, which is founded in principles of compassion, mercy, justice and love. Reducing the number of animals for food shows compassion to God's animals and helps restore the environment..
