Curtin Dairy Farm Anaerobic Digestion
Dairy Environmental Systems Group
The owners of Curtin Dairy are concerned with being good neighbors to the residential homeowners surrounding their large dairy farm. The digester will address their three primary concerns: 1. Reducing the negative environmental impacts (primarily odors) of land application of dairy wastes. 2. Significantly reduce the high cost of purchased bedding, while increasing the quantity of safe bedding per animal. 3. Reduce the dependence on fossil fuels for space and water heating, and for grain drying.
