The Sheep Co-operative Research Centre (yup that’s a real thing) is heading up a study which aims at breeding sheep that do not burp.

Well, the Aussie scientists are hoping to reduce methane emissions by cutting the amount of sheep burps which find their way into the atmosphere.

If anything, these will at least be the most welcome dinner party sheep this side of a perfectly prepared lamb chop. Check out more on the belch-free sheep by following the links below.
