Note to readers, attached is the complete final report for FNE95-088.
We met over a series of months with each other and representatives from NRCS, FHA, the State of CT, AgStar, various vendors, Small Business Assistance and our lawyer. We became a cooperative, CVAC and applied for several grants and technical assistance. CVAC received a 240,000 dollar grant from CT. We hashed and rehashed our goals. We visited composting operations, squeezers, sewage treatment plants and marketing organizations. To date CVAC has built a 380 cow manure storage at Elm Knoll and a 650 cow manure separator at Laurel Brook. Another separator is planned for summer at the Freund’s and Carlwood is planning a manure storage area.
