Dairy Farmers of America and Vanguard Renewables Announce Strategic Partnership to Help Bring Anaerobic Digestion Technology

Dairy Farmers of America and Vanguard Renewables announce a strategic partnership to help bring anaerobic digestion technology to more farms across the country. While waste management and environmental sustainability are top priorities for dairy farmers renewable energy methods, like anaerobic digesters that convert manure to energy, are not broadly used on American dairy farms. With the alliance, DFA and Vanguard Renewables will collaborate to develop resilient business models using anaerobic digestion systems. Working with farmers, government agencies, dairy processors and retailer customers, the partners will build business cases for innovative systems. For those business models that meet financial thresholds, Vanguard Renewables will provide capital investment for anaerobic digestion systems on DFA member farms. Vanguard also will help oversee and monitor the on-site operation of the digester on DFA member farms. This extremely valuable expertise will allow farmers to remain focused on the core operational aspects of running their farms and not get distracted by the digester, while gaining added income from dairy operations. Vanguard Farm Powered anaerobic digestion systems are currently operating on two DFA member farms, with the goal of adding more soon with this new DFA/Vanguard alliance.
