Gee, thanks, Francine!: If everything goes right, this 24-year-old's research will pay off with less bad weather after feeding sheep "therapeutic essential oils"

Writtle College aiming to tackle global warming with burping sheep
BURPING sheep are the subject of a ground-breaking study at Writtle College which aims to tackle global warming.

While most people do their bit for the environment by recycling food packaging, switching off lights and saving water, student Francine Gilman is researching ways to stop sheep from belching so many harmful greenhouse gases into the environment.
As part of her MSc in Livestock Production Science this spring, the 24-year-old is studying to improve the digestive systems of sheep with therapeutic essential oils.
