The Battle Against Cow Farts: How Will That Affect Consumers’ Health?
As a result of some of my writing about weather geoengineering, aka “chemtrails,” an activist in Greece, Wayne Hall, has been in contact with me and shared some information about what they are doing to raise consciousness in Athens.
Recently, Mr. Hall emailed the interview Serbian journalist Mara Knezevic-Kern had with J Marvin Herndon, PhD, whom I had interviewed about his research indicating that coal fly ash is a component of the chemtrail mix being sprayed http://www.activistpost.com/2015/06/weather-geoengineering-chemtrails.html .

A most interesting aspect in that interview, I think, is the question she asked Dr Herndon about President Obama’s “war on cow methane,” specifically that cows must be fed to reduce the methane they produce, i.e., cow farts! Really!
Agriculture: In June, in partnership with the dairy industry, the USDA, EPA and DOE will jointly release a “Biogas Roadmap” outlining voluntary strategies to accelerate adoption of methane digesters and other cost-effective technologies to reduce U.S. dairy sector greenhouse gas emissions by 25 percent by 2020. 
So, as a retired natural nutritionist I have to wonder what chemicals will be added along with other ingredients to reduce methane, which I contend results from forcing cows to eat starches and grains that Nature never intended them to eat thereby making cows produce more flatulence and gas than they normally would. Here’s proof that what cows eat influences their output not only in milk, but in cow flops and methane:
A 50 percent variation in manure production might result from differences in feed wastage, ration formulation, type of feeding program (e.g., dry lot versus pasture feeding), and/or animal grouping systems.  [CJF emphasis added]
Fermented grains also are fed to dairy cows, which cause, or increase, their digestive problems, flatulence and probable “food allergies,” since cows were designed by Nature to eat grasses:
By-products (e.g., products of the brewing and distilling industries) are often utilized in cattle diets. 
Cows are herbivores.
Cows are herbivorous. Their tooth and digestive system anatomy and physiology indicate an animal specialized for eating grass. 
To prove that cows have digestive problems, scientists are working with “cannulated cows” , or what’s called “holey” cows, trying to figure out what’s going on inside cows’ ruminant stomachs. They have one large stomach with four chambers.
Here’s the question that prompted this blog:
Obama recently announced that cow dung emits methane, which is more dangerous than CO2. He declared war on cow dung, and proposed that the cows must eat food additives to reduce the methane in their dung. On that occasion it was announced that the feed industries already own the formula for this supplement. Can we expect the Environmental Protection Agency to adopt a law on mandatory feeding of these supplements to livestock, regardless of the lack of testing on the functioning of such modified meat and dairy products on the human body? 
rBGH is a genetically engineered variant of the natural growth hormone produced by cows. Sold to dairy farmers under the trade name Posilac (formerly owned by Monsanto, now owned by Eli Lilly), injection of this hormone forces cows to boost milk production by about 10%, while increasing mastitis, lameness, and reproductive complications. 
“The available evidence shows that the use of rBGH can cause adverse health effects in cows.”  Are those health effects passed on to humans in their milk—is that why milk has to be pasteurized—and their meat?
Another new technology that may impact nutrient utilization and excretion is the administration of bovine growth hormone (BGH), or somatotropin. This peptide hormone can increase milk production by as much as 30 percent in certain cows within the herd, although the entire herd’s production would increase by only 14 percent. The nutrient requirements of a herd treated with BGH may increase by about 7 to 8 percent, and manure P may increase by 5 percent. However, the nutrient losses from the farm per unit of milk produced would, therefore, decrease by 8 to 10 percent per unit of milk produced. 
Here’s a video on the latest feeding techniques for dairy cows.
Is there any wonder why there’s so much methane from cows?
Just imagine what happens to you when you get into the wrong kind of food: heartburn, indigestion, flatulence, bloat, diarrhea, etc. Plus, now there’s the call to add more disruption to dairy cows’ digestion—probably more synthetic chemicals or veterinary pharmaceuticals—that will be added to the milk and meat supply. Old and past-prime-production dairy cows are sold as “canner and cutter grade cows” that usually wind up as lunchmeats.
When will consumers wake up to what’s being done to our food? No wonder so many people are allergic to milk and dairy products. Cows’ milk is compromised from the get-go. There really ought to be a law against that!
