Manure becomes energy source on farm

By Brian St. Denis
For Donnandale Farms, cow manure is soon to be much more than waste.
By December the Donnandale farm north of Belleville will be running self-sufficiently on biogas created by its 600 head of cattle.
Mark Donnan is one of the first to apply to the Ontario Biogas Financial Assistance Program, which funds up to $400,000 for construction and implementation costs. The project was in development now for a year-and-a-half.
