At UNH’s Organic Dairy Research Farm, UNH researchers have launched an innovative composting program that provides a high-quality compost product and captures the heat energy for use elsewhere on the farm. It’s part of University Professor John Aber’s work looking beyond the cows to see the farm as an agroecosystem. The project is supported by the USDA Program on Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education (SARE) and the NH Agricultural Experiment Station, and the Joshua Nelson Energy Recovery Compost Facility was funded by an anonymous donor.
