A trial showed that high-sugar grasses could reduce an animal's methane emissions by 20 per cent for every kg of weight gain and naked oats could reduce methane emissions from sheep by 33 percent.Farm animals have been roaming the earth for hundreds of years and have also been emitting methane for hundreds of years.
