• How do you properly manage and account for finances?
• What are the potential impacts of a construction project on your dairy?
• What do you need to know about community outreach?
• What should you expect for starting up the system?
On November 10, 2021 Newtrient presented a webinar to help farms explore renewable natural gas (RNG) opportunities, specifically focused on permitting, contracts and financing.
Based on content from the AgSTAR Project Development Handbook, this webinar is the third in a four-part series that provides a step-by-step approach to a successful on-farm RNG project.
On October 27, 2021 Newtrient presented a webinar to help farms explore renewable natural gas (RNG) opportunities, specifically focused on business models and partnerships. Based on content from the AgSTAR Project Development Handbook, this webinar is the first in a four-part series that provides a step-by-step approach to a successful on-farm RNG project.
On October 13, 2021 Newtrient presented this webinar geared toward dairy farmers of all sizes who want to find out if their farm is a good fit for an RNG project and learn about the types of projects that are available. Based on content from the AgSTAR Project Development Handbook, this webinar is the first in a four-part series that helps clear up the confusion around these projects and what they can mean to a dairy farm and the dairy industry.
This webinar series is sponsored by EPA AgSTAR.
Newtrient LLC and NMPF recently submitted comments to the National Organic Standards Board (NOSB) about the suitability of manure-based ammonia extract as a fertilizer for organic crop production.
On March 17, 2021 Newtrient presented this webinar which included a dairy farmer who recently negotiated a digester agreement, an engineer specializing in renewable natural gas and a dairy digester expert on how to prepare and what to consider before speaking with potential developers.
This webinar was sponsored by the American Biogas Council (ABC).
Between 2018 and 2020, Newtrient and its partners worked to advance environmental marketplace solutions and tools to improve water quality through a program funded by a Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS). Utilizing a Cooperative Agreement award, the project focused on expanding tools that could be used in market-based approaches to address water quality challenges in Vermont and Wisconsin.
AgSTAR, in coordination with technical experts, recently released a comprehensive handbook of the latest industry knowledge and best practices for anaerobic digestion (AD) and biogas systems.
Newtrient, in collaboration with the Innovation Center for U.S. Dairy and leading agriculture environmental experts, released an update on the potential of dairy feed additives for reducing dairy’s environmental footprint.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
The Wisconsin State Assembly today passed legislation sponsored by Senator Cowles (R-Green Bay), Representative Kitchens (R-Sturgeon Bay), Senator Miller (D-Monona) and Representative Fields (D-Milwaukee) which would accelerate Wisconsin’s water quality trading programs, leading to a more economically sustainable path to improve the state’s water quality.
The Wisconsin State Senate unanimously passed legislation that will boost Wisconsin’s water quality trading programs, leading to more financially sustainable ways to improve water quality.
On February 27, 2019, the Dairy Sustainability Alliance® hosted a webinar with Newtrient. The webinar topic was Ecosystem Services Markets (ESMs) and shared how dairy can benefit from market-based solutions.
The current economics of dairy farming make it challenging to adopt manure management technologies that could provide environmental benefits.Through this approach, farms of all sizes can be incentivized to voluntarily adopt new technologies and practices beyond what they’re already doing, small manufacturers and food companies remain in operation and municipalities don’t pass along multi-million dollar wastewater treatment plant upgrade costs to taxpayers.
Yesterday the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) released a joint letter to state environmental and agricultural agencies actively voicing support for collaborative, market-based approaches to reduce nutrient overloading and improve waterways.
Although I am originally from a small farming community in Ohio, prior to interning with , I wasn't familiar with the dairy industry, let alone the manure management and nutrient recovery solution opportunities for dairy farms.
As LLC enters its third year, we want to share progress toward a new economic future for dairy on the part of 12 leading dairy cooperatives, Dairy Management Inc. (DMI) and National Milk Producers Federation (NMPF).
Each year, the Innovation Center for U.S. Dairy gathers experts from academic, government and non-government organizations as members of the Dairy Sustainability Alliance to measure, improve and communicate dairy's role in a sustainable food system. The Forum also recognizes dairy farms, businesses and partnerships whose practices are leading the way in providing consumers with nutritious dairy products, while making the earth economically, environmental and socially better - now and for years to come.
When thinking about manure management technologies and solutions, digesters are often the first solutions that come to mind. But methane digesters are only part of the possibilities. The recovery of phosphorus, nitrogen, potassium and fiber from manure can be accomplished in a variety of ways.
Noble Research Institute recently announced its plans to create an ecosystem services market-based platform driven by soil health, water quality improvement and water quantity management. The program aims to incentivize farmers and ranchers to improve soil health on working agriculture lands through a market-based approach.
