The truth finally revealed : thai buffaloes do not contribute to greenhouse gas emissions

Mr. Kitti Koobkaew, an animal husbandman researcher from Maha Sarakham Research and Technology Teaching Centre, Maha Sarakham province, revealed today that cattle farm animals like buffaloes do not contribute to the greenhouse gas emissions from their belching and flatulence.

He asserted that according to the data provided by the Livestock Department Information Centre, it indicated that there are only 1.75 million buffaloes in the nation, a number of which is considered to be minimal compared to other types of farm animal.

Mr. Kitti also added that because buffalo farming usually takes place in common lands, rice fields and other natural spaces. Therefore, buffaloes have more likely contributed to the ecological system in positive manner. Meanwhile, they also have helped reducing fuel usage of farmers through consumption of dry food and rice straws, which would have been burnt and emitted harmful gases to the atmosphere otherwise.

He then concluded that in fact, buffaloes can certainly help mitigate the greenhouse gas emissions as they have become more eco-friendly alternatives to mechanical tools and machineries. (PRD)

    Depends on whether they are talking about the 4-legged variety or the 2-legged variety I suppose. The 2-legged variety produce so much more hot air…
