Farmers retrofit their farms with digesters that turn cow waste into a renewable energy source. The process of removing cow manure from the barn floor, and collecting the methane gas to produce energy is 75% efficient (compared to 30% efficiency from wind power and 12% efficiency by solar power). The benefits of Cow Power are endless and this renewable energy source could become an option for addressing the U.S energy crisis.
