E-M:/ COW POWER: Michigan farmers turn manure into energy

Across Michigan, half a dozen digesters are operating or planned on large farms. Michigan State University plans to spend $3 million in grant and foundation money to help small and midsize farms put in methane digesters, some shared among farms.
Gayle Miller, legislative director of the Sierra Club in Michigan, said most digesters are partly paid for by government grants or subsidies.

While the club would like to see a digester at every large-scale farm, taxpayers shouldn't have to pay for them, she said.
