Cows, Garlic and the Environment

Burping and farting cows are the UK's single largest cause of the green-house gas methane. Methane is 23 times worse than the vilified carbon-dioxide. Apparently the problem is getting worse because cows don't chew their food properly anymore.

Among the solutions may be feeding them garlic to reduce the methane output. That's not my experience of garlic.
