Why do cows fart so much?
Cows are ruminant animals, that is, they have four compartments in their stomach. When they eat grass, bacteria in the first compartment, the rumen, softens it. The cow can then bring it all back up into its mouth and chew it again (chewing the cud). Because the process of food breakdown is anaerobic (without air) it produces methane, a powerful greenhouse gas. This is mostly belched, but partly farted.
Agricultural scientists are experimenting with different food additives to try to lessen the amount of methane emissions.
- There are more than 150 different species of ruminants in all continents except Australia and Antarctica.
Well how much a cow passes a day is a lot because cows eat so they have to pass gas. (fart) Read More
Yes they do, but they burp much more than they pass gas. As a matter of fact, a cow will eructate (burp) once every minute of every day because of the proximity of the rumen to the mouth. Thus more methane is passed through the mouth than the anus, because it has a much shorter distance to travel outwards. Where the methane only has to go from the rumen to the esophagus and out the… Read More
yes methane is in a cows fart and there is alot of its better for a cow to fart outside than it is for them to fart while they are all couped up and the reason for this is because the methane which is let out by cows farts goes into the air and pollutes the earth and if they fart outside it is easier to spread out but when they are all couped up… Read More
They don't fart out of there mouths only there butt which realease methane! Read More
The gas in a cow's fart is mostly methane which is a 'greenhouse gas'. So it's bad for the environment. Read More
you can fart louder by eating more food so much so whenever you need to poo just get ready fart Read More
Well, a fart is a natural gas. We humans fart too. However, the stink isn't something someone would actually want to find out... Read More
Usually between 30-50 times a minute due to their 4 stomachs. They are responsible for 14% of the worlds greenhouse gases. Read More
Cows cause "enviornmental problems" because the "fart" or "poot" "toot" or Fart. PU!!!! Read More
Look mate, we all have to. Cows have the right to also and it stinks! Read More
In Austrelia there are farms with millions cows,pigs that (it is anbilivable but)they fart and retch and the ozone reduse Read More
Good dairy cows are the result of selective breading. Read More
all people fart. bob is a human so bob must fart. i, fart doctor, would know. i too fart so if i can do it, so can bob. Read More
METHANE this effects global warming because it is a greenhouse effect. Read More
Nature creates greenhouse gasses by having cows fart. Read More
yes,American bulldogs do fart alot because they are big dogs and some they eat too much and sometimes beg and beg for food so that's one of the reasons that American bulldogs fart alot.bark!bark! fart! fart! bye. :) Read More
because you gave him beans and i told you not to. Read More
They fart when there angry so they have intercourse with the female and after that they fart. Read More
Yes. Cows and horses are commonly found on rangelands, especially beef cattle (no, not the "cows" that are in feedlots, but actual beef cows), not so much dairy cattle. Read More
Yes. A high amount of methane (fart) can pollute the air as it is still gaseous. An example of this is that cows alone produce a percentage of methane as they "fart" many times each day as they usually let out a lot of gas. Read More
Because we a monkey has children it mates with a cows fart boule. Read More
Cows fart we harness the energy and use it to power our spaceship motorcycles! Read More
My cats and dog fart. I've been around horses when they farted. And if you've ever driven across the Pan Handle of Texas anywhere near Abilene, you know that cows pass A LOT of methane! So I would bet that deer probably fart too! Read More
Actually if you hold a "fart" it infects body or bowel causing the to shut the hart down causing him/her to die(if you do it to much) so don't hold in your "farts" Read More
Probably very little, as passing gas is a symptom of a food being poorly digested, and penguins are not force-fed like CAFO cows, for instance. They eat what they are suited to eat. Read More
Its natural to fart, so if you don't fart that's a problem. When you eat (of course) natural gas comes out of your ---- so the food doesn't build up inside you. But this answer might not be right, so don't use this for anything or think it's true. so you pretty much blow up Read More
