Abstract. A methodology for measuring greenhouse gases from mixed excrements from cattle and buffaloes was developed. A universal formula was used to calculate them. The authors gave an example of a calculation. They reflected the typical excrement distribution based on the most used animal breeding technologies and the net energy in feed and excrements in Bulgaria.
Key words: cattle farming, greenhouse gases.
