Rosendale Dairy – Home of new digester

Oshkosh, Wisconsin, is best known for the clothing line, Oshkosh B’gosh, but the Oshkosh campus of the University of Wisconsin is hoping that it will also become known as a global leader in biodigester technology within the agricultural world. That reputation recently took a giant leap forward with the launch of a new $10 million, 1.4 megawatt (MW) biodigester at the state’s largest dairy, financed and operated by the University of Wisconsin – Oshkosh Foundation. Located at the Rosendale Dairy, owned by the company Milk Source, the biodigester will process 240 tons of manure per day from the dairy’s 8,500 cows, generating biogas burned as fuel in power production and a pathogen-free and nutrient-rich waste stream that is land applied as organic fertilizer. Some will be used on the dairy’s own farmland and the rest marketed at a discounted rate compared to commercial fertilizer to the dairy’s feed providers for use on their land.
