Even though we are overexposed to short-term events in the world, in the longer run we climate problem awaits a danger. Aware of this danger, experts conduct various investigations and research on the causes of changes in the atmosphere. Among many other reasons, animals are also in danger of the climate crisis as a cause.
Farm animals have been under scrutiny for a while due to their digestive and excretory systems, stomach structures and the gases they produce. The Netherlands, one of Europe’s valuable agricultural exporters, has recently come to the fore with a plan to reduce the number of farm animals such as cows, pigs and chickens by one third in order to reduce nitrogen emissions that are harmful to the environment. Another application came from researchers in Germany. Researchers aim to reduce greenhouse gas emissions toilet training for cows.
“Why shouldn’t they learn to use the toilet?”
According to a study published in Current Biology; It has been reported that cows were toilet trained by a group of researchers due to their effects on greenhouse gas emissions with their gases, urine and feces. The team of experts in animal behavior and agricultural sciences, enabling cows to urinate into grass-made toilets, nitrogen oxide has stopped production.
In the statement made about the research, it was stated that cows are generally thought to be animals that cannot control their feces and urine. Cows, like many other animals or farm animals, are highly intelligent and can learn a lot. Using the toilet why shouldn’t they learn?”.
