Scientist have found that coriander and turmeric cut down methane emissions in sheep by up to 40% - pretty much the opposite effect to humans

It will save time marinating the lamb for a curry.

cumin, also used in curries, is known for its 'anti-flatulence' properties. I think where we humans spoil the scientific formula, & meddle with any beneficial and natural properties, is by swilling down umpteen pints of lager at the same time. Sheep of course don't do this...

I can assure you that there is a fault in your theory as I don't drink lager with my curry but still suffer the after effects.

It has been reported that Kengeroos- who are type of ruminant do not produce methane.
So Cross Kangaroos with cows and get methane free cows'

Down side -like the four legged chicken- catching them at milking time
;-}

Would a kangacow, presumably bigger than a red kangaroo, be able to jump even higher than a red kangaroo?

Will farmers need to surround their fields with 15' high fences?

Cross a kangaroo with a sheep and you get wooly jumpers...

"So Cross Kangaroos with cows and get methane free cows'"

On the other hand, you could get kangaroos who do not give milk but do produce a lot of methane :-)
