'Cow-Powered' Milk Truck Debuts

screen shot of California Farmer article

"The first 'cow-powered' truck made its debut at the 2009 World Ag Expo. Two trucks that normally run on diesel have been converted to run on biomethane produced from cow manure at Hilarides Dairy, Lindsay. This renewable fuels model reduces global warming emissions (methane from manure), air pollution (from diesel emissions) and dependence on fossil fuels without a food-fuel trade-off in land use."
