First RNG project on a Wisconsin dairy farm starts in Kewaunee County

KEWAUNEE COUNTY, Wis. (WBAY) – Pagel’s Ponderosa Dairy, a dairy farm in Kewaunee County, will now be making renewable natural gas from its dairy cow manure as fuel to power vehicles all across the country.

It's the first project of its kind in Wisconsin, and only the second in the country. 

“This will definitely help the environment around the nation, by taking extra trucks off the road, being able to use the natural gas, instead of having to use diesel fuel all the time, the other thing is, it will reduce our carbon footprint,” said J.J Pagel, CEO of Pagel Family Businesses.
