What do farmers do with all of that manure?
A dairy cow produces as much as 120 pounds of manure a day. However, farmers recognize that manure is a valuable resource to be recycled instead of wasted. Manure contains important nutrients for growing plants, such as nitrogen and phosphorus. Applying manure to farm fields reduces or eliminates the need to add these nutrients via chemical fertilizers. Recycling manure helps improve efficiency, grow better crops and manage manure. Anaerobic digester systems allow farmers to go a step further and recycle manure into biofuel or clean, renewable electricity. Yay poop!
