In this CNET Green Tech article, Martin LaMonica spotlights the Jordan Dairy Farm, a family-owned, 300 head dairy cow operation that will soon be implementing an anaerobic digester (AD). This system will convert liquid food waste, shipped in from food processing plants, as well as their cow manure into energy. The farm, located in Rutland, Massachusetts, has the opportunity to establish the ideal model for other dairy farmers to earn money and reduce their environmental footprint through the use of anaerobic digestion (LaMonica, 2011).
