Wisconsin is a leader in agricultural-based anaerobic digestion, a process of degrading organic material, like dairy manure, that produces renewable energy, as well as cutting down on odors, pathogens, antibiotics, and greenhouse gas emissions. This research-based fact sheet provides information on the advantages and disadvantages of dairy farmers adopting this system (5 pages; 2016).
