'Super Grass' to Reduce Methane Emissions From Belching Cows

The grass is about to get greener thanks to DNA technology out of Denmark. Researchers say they've genetically modified a "super grass" that is easier on cow's stomachs, thereby helping them digest the grass more easily and thus belch out less methane gas, reports the BBC. (No, farting isn't the...
