Workshop for dairy producers on manure digester systems in Elk Grove Oct. 15

The Environmental Protection Agency's AgSTAR program is holding a workshop Oct. 15 in Elk Grove for dairy producers interested in learning more about manure digester systems.

The workshop will feature presentations by producers, project developers and other stakeholders. The one-day event will include classroom presentations and discussion as well as a tour of the operating digester systems at two dairies.

The workshop is free, but there's an optional $20 fee for those who want to have coffee and a box lunch. The deadline for registration is Monday. Limited on-site registration on the day of the event may be available, but space isn't guaranteed. For more information, e-mail
