Holy Cow! Our Cattle Waste is Powering 6,000 Homes!

Shalom Yeladim:

The holidays are over and now it's back to business as usual. Business as usual???? In Israel, it's always business as unusual.

You know that we Israelis don't like being cowed into doing anything. So, going at our own pace we developed a way to gain the highest milk yield from our Holstein cows.

Now we've come up with another cow "technique" and all I can say is mooo over environmentalists. We've set up a new biogas conversion facility in a moshav  -- agricultural village -- located in our southern region. It's aim is to turn livestock waste -- and I bet those Holstein cows have a lot -- into electricity. At the end of the day its output is set to be 4 megawatts of electricity.  That's enough to power 6,000 homes!

You know what I have to say about that? Holy cow!
