Potential customers for INTEGRITY's products are owners of family and family-factory dairy farms. Cows produce about 35 gallons of waste per cow per day. Greater demand and larger herd sizes sometimes results in nutrient overloading to fields, watershed pollution, and environmental damage to significant water bodies. Technology solutions provided by INTEGRITY contribute to a manure management system that prevents non-point-source pollution; reduces a farm's carbon footprint; captures methane from the manure stream for use as a bio-energy source; and recovers material for re-use as animal bedding. These solutions allow dairy producers to increase profits, reduce waste and improve environmental stewardship. In short, this technology allows farmers to increase herd size on the same land space while meeting federal, state and local regulations.
