Two years ago, I wrote in Ag Data News about how a dairy cow's manure was half as valuable as its milk. This value stemmed mostly from huge subsidies available through California's Low Carbon Fuel Standard. I updated the analysis last year.

Aren't dairies outside CA also eligible for subsidies related to the LCFS? Not sure the data is there to track their growth, or lack of growth. Accessing LCFS subsidies is often mentioned by outside of CA digester projects.
