MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - UW-Madison will conduct new research on reducing the greenhouse gases that come from dairy farms.

In a visit to Madison Tuesday, U.S. Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack said the university would get part of a $10 million federal grant.

The UW will work with six other schools and five federal labs on the project. It will look for ways to improve dairy production, while reducing the greenhouse gases blamed for global warming.

The research will study all aspects of dairy farming – everything from manure to methane. The goal is to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 25 percent by 2020.
