Turning poop into power
Bio-gas from Manure
One of the big challenges with owning a ranch is managing manure. The food has to go somewhere and sometimes manure can be harmful to the environment if not managed correctly. At the Raymond Ranch we capture the manure from the animals we have and place it into anaerobic digester where it is decomposed by naturally occurring bacteria and turned into useful fluid fertilizer as well as bio-gas or methane.
We use this fertilizer to help ensure our fields recover after we take our animals off of them and we use the bio-gas to power electrical generators and heaters during the winter months.
