Farm Kangaroos - Reduce the Methane

While it is known that ruminants do produce methane, the corollorary of that is that simple gutted animals do not. Enter the kangaroo. The dearly loved emblem on the coat of arms of Australia that is hunted, shot, eats grain crops, makes great leather shoes, is an excellent meat for dog food and so on. And does not produce methane. And is not farmed.

So the scenario for Australia goes something like this.........we will replace all cows with farmed kangaroos, reduce the methane emissions and all live happily everafter. NOT!!!

Read the following, especially the comments.

An academic exercise, with little practical application. So sad. But I bet the author is being paid a lot of money for totally impractical applications.
