That's got to be a wind up. How would you stop the fluids from a cow's stomach emptying into the bag? How would you seal the tube into the cow's stomach (can be done, but not easy)? Why is the bag full of gas already? What pressure does the cow's stomach run up to?!

It's not a subject that hasn't been covered in depth already. Why not simply put the cow in a closed environment (with an oxygen feed, and perhaps CO2 scrubber), and just measure the rate of increase of CH4 concentration?

Reminds me of an old student trick to get a free beer.

Buy and pint and drink half to two thirds. Then hold glass descreetly in place and let rip. Cap pint glass with hand and take to bar. complain to barman that beer must be off and offer glass up - which he inevitably smells  vomit- agrees beer is off and offers free pint of other beer.

I will get my coat horror
