This Dairy Farm Runs on Cow Poop (So Does Its New Feed Truck)
Straus isn’t just applying these policies on his own farm or the eight other family farms with which the creamery works. He’s working on helping to build and operate methane digesters for other farmers, especially given the new law passed in California dictating that farmers must reduce their methane emissions by 40 percent by 2030. As a farmer himself, Straus is perfectly positioned to advocate for farmers in the development of this project, noting that they already have a hard enough time managing their farms without having to manage their energy resources as well: any solution must be simple to implement for it to be a success.
