    Proposal summary:

    To demonstrate that a bio-gas digester can be built inexpensively and operated effectively by small-medium farmers, also to determine the cost savings achieved by using bio-gas instead of electricity to heat chicken boarders and piglet creeps. Lately, to analyze nutrient value of the digerster's effluent and determine its value as a replacement for other fertilizers.
