Manure Digestion System

Livestock producers in Minnesota and elsewhere are seeking ways to deal with manure from their operations in a safe, efficient and sustainable way. Among the options is the use of a manure digester. This manure treatment system produces several components including bio-solids that can be land applied for fertilizer. The other co-generated product is methane gas, which can be flared off or burned as a green fuel for power generation or heat.

Learn more about evaluating the benefits of an on-farm digester as a means of manure processing. A check list for producers to use to determine if a digester is a viable option for them is provided.
