Policy News: POSTnote on Livestock Emissions
Ann Bruce contributes to the Parliamentary Office of Science and Technologyâ€™s POSTnote on Livestock Emissions.
As POST explains, â€˜Livestock farming results in the emission of the greenhouse gases (GHG) methane and nitrous oxide. Such emissions are difficult to accurately quantify and control.â€™ As such, POSTnote 453 â€˜examines current policy and prospects for further reductions in emissions.â€™
The POSTnote draws on Bruceâ€™s ESRC funded project, â€˜Mitigating the environmental impact of cattle and sheep: animal genetics and farmersâ€™ readiness for uptakeâ€™ (www.burpingsheep.org).
