Gassy Cow Starts Fire at German Dairy Farm
flock(herd? business? steakhouse?) of 90 cows literally blew off the roof in Germany earlier this week when methane gas from the cows collected and exploded, damaging the roof of a farm shed and injuring one of the animals, Reuters reports.
Luckily enough, no one was harmed and the cow was treated for burns and is expected to make a full recovery. How'd the explosion even happen? Well, cows are really, really gassy. They can produce up to 500 liters of methane gas a day. Dozens of them working together? I'm surprised Harris Ranch (ever drive up the 5? You know the ranch I'm talking about.) isn't up in flames every other week.
