Talking Beef Cattle Greenhouse Gas Emissions and More with Dr. Frank MitloehnerTue, 02 Sep 2014 10:14:32 CDT
Radio Oklahoma Ag Network Farm Director Ron Hays recently sat down with Dr. Frank Mitloehner, Professor and Air Quality Extension Specialist at the University of California-Davis. Dr. Mitloehner is known internationally for his work in determining the greenhouse gas emissions of livestock- and his work forced the United Nations to revise down the impact of cattle on global greenhouse gas emissions.
Hays met with Dr. Mitloehner in his office at UC-Davis and talked with him about that confrontation with the UN and what has gone on since in his work to show that livestock provide only a small amount of GHG into the atomosphere- expecially here in the US.
He also challenges those who champion Meatless Mondays- and believes that livestock producers need to be more open with the general public about how beef is produced in this country- as he says animal agriculture has a tremendously positive story to share.
