The lore of low methane livestock: co-producing technology and animals for reduced climate change impact

  title={The lore of low methane livestock: co-producing technology and animals for reduced climate change impact},
  author={Ann Bruce},
Methane emissions from sheep and cattle production have gained increasing profile in the context of climate change. Policy and scientific research communities have suggested a number of technological approaches to mitigate these emissions. This paper uses the concept of co-production as an analytical framework to understand farmers’ evaluation of a ‘good animal’. It examines how technology and sheep and beef cattle are co-produced in the context of concerns about the climate change impact of… CONTINUE READING
