Nelson ZandbergenFarmers ForumBRINSTON — A multi-million-dollar silo digester that can handle manure from about 10 dairy farms is nearing completion on Thurler Farms, southwest of Winchester. It’s the first in a planned fleet of 310 units nationwide to extract methane from most of the manure produced on Canada’s 10,000 dairy farms by 2030. Participating farmers will also get a share of revenues that GET Corp. earns from the sale of methane — otherwise known as Renewable Natural Gas when cleaned up for the natural gas grid. The methane brewed at Thurler Farms will be cleaned and liquified on site, and transported via an 18-wheeler tanker truck to a Peterborough site for injection into Enbridge’s natural gas grid. Biogas now accounts for over 25 % of the gas flowing through the Danish natural gas grid.

He doesn’t have that social connection with folks.”Perhaps no one is paying closer attention than Trump, who views DeSantis as his only real rival for the Republican presidential nomination. Such stops give voters “a way to see the president in a different light," said Trump spokesperson Steven Cheung.
