Looking online, it appears that another method to reduce methane production by cattle is to include seaweed as part of their diet. A country like Japan, surrounded by the ocean, is well-placed to take investige this stratagem.

However, I can't help thinking that the quickly defrosting permafrost in the arctic circle is a much more drastic and imminent threat to our survival than the burping of cattle. The amount of methane sequestered in the arctic, and under the ocean, is huge.
