Talking Beef Cattle Greenhouse Gas Emissions and More with Dr. Frank Mitloehner

Tue, 02 Sep 2014 10:14:32 CDT

Talking Beef Cattle Greenhouse Gas Emissions and More with Dr. Frank Mitloehner 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.
