Staff at a dairy farm in India believe their cows, which are less flatulent, can help combat environmental pollution.

As unusual as the idea seems, reducing the gas produced by cows could have a positive environmental impact on a global scale given the fact that there are a billion cows on the planet.

According to UN estimates, cows produce more greenhouse gases than cars, planes and all other forms of transport combined.

The staff at Gau Dairy Farm in Kota, India say their cows produce up to 70 percent less methane than other cattle.
