Jon Moorby of the Institute of Grassland and Environmental Research at the University of Aberystwyth believes that intensive indoor dairy farms are more climate friendly than their outdoor brethren, the Livejournal reports.
"In general, intensive dairy farms are actually quite good for the environment, because it allows us to control what we do with what comes out of the cow much better than in a more extensive system," he says.
"With the animals being inside all the time, it allows us to control the manure and slurries from them much better than we can when they're outside."
