The University of Lethbridge is getting federal money to study ways to reduce methane gas emissions in cattle. Calgary MP Kent Hehr made the $1.1 million announcement Tuesday saying the government is committed to helping address climate change. The study led by the U of L will investigate whether the use of biochar, a feed supplement in beef cattle diets, improves the efficiency of digestion and reduces the amount of methane gas produced. It's one of 20 new research projects supported by the Agricultural Greenhouse Gases Program. -Tina Giesbrecht
