Methane is one of the most exciting and contentious discussions on large US dairy farms today. It has become clear that with California’s new environmental legislation, the opportunity for green energy has never been greater. Producers who have already embraced this, invested in their land in wind power and solar panels, but methane through manure represents an even greater value, both for its potential to remove a perceived pollutant, and for its energy value.

In this upcoming Cainthus webinar, 3 well known and forward thinking dairy experts will share their experience and knowledge, explaining why methane emissions might well be an opportunity for the Dairy industry and how leading producers can avail of this opportunity.

  • What is the real climate impact of methane produced by Dairy cattle?
  • Why a large Minnesota based Dairy made the leap and invested in a methane digester?
  • What types of dairy farms are a good fit for a RNG project and what business models are available to producers today?

Meet with Frank Mitloehner, Ph.D., Professor and Air Quality, Extension Specialist at UC Davis, Department of Animal Science, Dairy producer Michael Crinion of Ash Grove Dairy, MN and Mark Stoermann, chief Operating Officer of Newtrient, a company aiming at helping producers reduce their environmental footprint while making it economically viable. The Webinar will be hosted by Aidan Connolly, CEO of Cainthus.
