Animal Facility Application

Advantages:

  • GHG Reduction
  • SGMA - flexibility to achieve nutrient balance with less land even if groundwater pumping is restricted
  • Economic advantages
    • Can free up land for crop diversification - higher value crops
    • More efficient irrigation - SSDI. Get more crop per drop.
    • Power and/or gas sales
    • Algae sales: bio-plastic, feed, other
    • Milk more cows if desired
  • Regulatory relief/avoided costs
    • Potentially avoid relining lagoons in the future - reduced wastewater strength.
    • Skip a technology. (Instead of dedicated manure distribution systems for land application, install subsurface drip irrigation)
