What happens to hydrogen and carbon when the production of methane from cattle is reduced?

Methane consists of carbon and hydrogen, and the production of methane in the rumen of cattle can be reduced significantly by for example adding fat or by adding a new feed additive, Bovaer®, to the ration. Researchers at AU Foulum are now investigating where that carbon and hydrogen end up, and whether the lower production of methane means that…
