Panel Speakers: Mark Lowery, Commercial Marketing Director, New Holland North America, and Tom Taylor, Production Lead, Bennamann LTD Presenting Company: New Holland With the cost of energy and fuel rising, alternative options are being positioned more as solutions to help fuel dairy operations. One local, renewable source is at the center of it all: Cow manure. Success has been had in the past in powering dairy operations by transforming manure into methane for electricity, but now that same fuel source can be harnessed to fuel farm equipment by converting manure into low-emission biomethane fuel. By doing this, dairy operations are tapping into a source they own from the start and generate all-year, while mitigating the need to source fuel from a third-party provider. Join this panel of experts as they dive into the opportunities and prospects offered by biomethane fuel today — and in the future — for dairy operations, the conversion process and the positive effects of this solution downstream in the marketplace.

Panel Speakers: Mark Lowery, Commercial Marketing Director, New Holland North America, and Tom Taylor, Production Lead, Bennamann LTD Presenting Company: New Holland With the cost of energy and fuel rising, alternative options are being positioned more as solutions to help fuel dairy operations. One local, renewable source is at the center of it all: Cow manure. Success has been had in the past in powering dairy operations by transforming manure into methane for electricity, but now that same fuel source can be harnessed to fuel farm equipment by converting manure into low-emission biomethane fuel. By doing this, dairy operations are tapping into a source they own from the start and generate all-year, while mitigating the need to source fuel from a third-party provider. Join this panel of experts as they dive into the opportunities and prospects offered by biomethane fuel today — and in the future — for dairy operations, the conversion process and the positive effects of this solution downstream in the marketplace.
