Energy self-sufficient dairy farm fueled with biogas Kenya - Case Study
A modern free stall zero grazing unit was built during 2012 for a herd of Holstein Friesian cattle located in Mweiga, Kenya. In free stall design, each cow is accorded individual attention in feeding, monitoring, comfort, proper ventilation and free passage. The unit has a capacity to hold 200 mature cows.
The unit is run by biogas power plant using cow manure as the energy source.
Self-sufficiency and reliability. Nocart system allows surplus electricity to be sold to local electric company through grid.
