    Seaweed Fed Beef

    Interesting story - read entirely...

    Cool. There's a lot we need to do to curb carbon emissions and things like this are low hanging fruit.

      This will work worldwide when all I get are essential oils from the pharmacy.

      Years ago they were feeding chicken litter to cattle.

      Pretty neat discovery nonetheless.

        I know some people who shud eat more seaweed....
        Sadly I don't see them producing enough to make a huge difference and they admit cattle's gut may adapt to seaweed and relight the wick.

          I think the more interesting thing would be to figure out why the seaweed has this effect and then see if we can mass produce those compounds and add them to the regular feed to get this effect (or some of it)

          Well Dalhousie is a well respected university up here, if they can't figure it out I'd think no one can.
          Like most things depends on funding, no funding they may as well feed the cattle caramel
          corn.

        I wonder what the beef tastes like when they've been fed seaweed. Given that grass really changes the flavor profiles, it seems worth looking into.

          Yeah, that would be interesting to know. They could grain finish it but still...

        WTF? Cows eat grass, always have. Why do people want to mess with nature? Boys are boys, girls are girls, cows eat grass. And fish fornicate in water, consume at your own discretion.

          Mike,

          Actually, I'm fairly sure that I do actually understand what you're on about, I was just choosing to politely de-escalate and disengage. I did this mostly out of respect for Meathead and the staff/moderators of the PIT.

          Merry Christmas, Mike, and I hope we're able to have a rational discussion about this sometime in the future. Sincerely.

          Best regards,
          Greg, the child

          So does this mean we would no longer need to dry brine our beef, as it would come pre-salted from the diet?

            Wonder how much crud is put in the atmosphere from one volcano? I think we ought to ban volcanos & earthquakes. Mebbee if we move people around we can control the quakes, specially the heavy trucks, I mean they do weigh a lot.

              During WW2 the US seeded clouds to rein the enemy. The weather used as a weapon did not stop there. Just another example of man ruling man to his own ruin.
              Google "weaponizing weather" for example.

                Just wait... we've got billionaires wanting to spend their own money (and plenty of other peoples' money) to 'seed' the atmosphere with mica or some crap? You know, to slow global warming. Just wait...

                I can't see ANYTHING going wrong with that, can you??? Naaaaaahhhhhh....

                  What in the World Are They Spraying?
                  Chemtrails as opposed to contrails?

                  Yes, they think spraying hundreds of TONS of particulate matter in the upper atmosphere will be beneficial and lead to global cooling. Just wait... the stupidity of man thinking he can control the planet will never cease - only get worse.

                One thing to keep in mind is that methane is a far stronger heat absorber than is CO2 by a factor of about 25. A reduction of methane emissions is a good thing to do, and yes cows have always eaten grass, but we have a whole lot more cows than ever before, do we not?

                All that said, it is already too late to stop some serious consequences this century even if we could magically stop all emissions tomorrow. There is a lot of hysteresis in the system, inertia if you will, changes take a while to get going, and a while to react to inputs. What we really need to do is add an effective means of sequestering CO2 and methane from the atmosphere that isn't energy-prohibitive. Such technology is in its early days, but there have been promising developments in recent years. We need to start actively removing these compounds to augment what we can manage on emission reduction.

                Volcanoes may actually be part of the solution! One of the most promising prototype processes uses geothermal energy from the magmatic provinces of Iceland to basically pump water carbonated with CO2 extracted from the atmosphere through the margins of a geothermal system, like artificial hot springs basically. When the water reacts with the basaltic lavas in the ground, the CO2 gets locked up in carbonate minerals that are stable at surface conditions on the order of billions of years. So that would take it out of the picture for good. We need more of this!

                  How do you milk a sea-cow? Or make sea-cheese?

              The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One


              The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.
