A Swiss company says its scientists have developed something that will be a big help with climate change, a feed that reduces flatulence.
 
According to the U-N, cows farting produces four per cent of the greenhouse gases every year that are contributing to climate change.
 
That's why the Swiss firm Agolin has started producing feed which can reduce a cow's flatulence by 10 per cent.
 
It's already selling the mixture for about 1-million cows per year, which today adds up to about 300-thousand tonnes of C-O-2 reduction.
