New carbon scheme, low flatulance cattle?

MacLeod hopes to have a clear picture of the gas profile of New Brunswick dairy farms by the end of the year and will rank them from worst to best by comparing to a baseline from previous years.

“Then we’ll be able to say, ‘Look, on these 50 dairy farms, we found say, you know 100 tonnes of carbon credits per farm, times 50, there’s 5,000 tonnes of carbon. Who’s interested? Who wants to show some corporate responsibility?’

“And throw those out on the market and see if we can stimulate something.”

Carbon credits could be a new revenue source for the farmers, said MacLeod.

Yep, if the dairy farmers can make their cows fart less, they can suck money from you, the taxpayer, in the name of saving the earth!
