This week’s featured video was a news story published by Fox13 Tampa Bay that featured a local researcher. Dr. Nicolas DiLorenzo, UF/IFAS Beef Cattle Specialist, at the North Florida Research and Education Center – Marianna, is conducting research on feed additives that can reduce the percentage of methane in cow belches. Methane from cattle has been a controversial issue for the past several years, because it has been blamed as a cause of global warming or climate change. Dr. DiLorenzo’s research is measuring methane emissions, and also evaluating management practices that can reduce the amount methane cattle produce. Thanks to Dr. Brent Sellers, UF/IFAS Range Cattle Research and Education Center Director for sending in this story to share.
