Wright, Peter; Ma, Jianguo
Edward Swartz, Jr operates Spring Valley Dairy, located in the town of Schodack, in Rensselaer County. There are 236 animals including 150 milkers, 50 heifers, and 36 calves on the 1800-acre farm. To address a variety of issues including odor control, nutrient planning, and potentially increasing revenue, Spring Valley Dairy looked into anaerobic digestion technology for a solution.
