Cow-Pie Energy

Hosted by


The Crave Brothers Dairy Farm's George Crave converts cow waste to energy by using the anaerobic digester. Located in Waterloo, Wisconsin, the farm collects cow manure and stores it in a huge tank for about two weeks, where it ferments and releases methane, which is then converted into energy. The farm expanded their enterprise into Crave Brothers Farmstead Cheese.

To learn more about the Crave's system of creating energy from waste, read about Wisconsin Farm Technology Days and the Cheese by Hand blog.
