Kinnard Farms, Sedron Technologies to present manure treatment project July 18th

You will get to hear more about a potential game changer in manure treatment strategies later this month at the Kewaunee County Land and Water Conservation Committee meeting. 


Lee Kinnard from Kinnard Farms in Casco and a representative from Sedron Technologies will give a presentation during the July 18th Kewaunee County Land and Water Conservation Committee meeting about the manure treatment facility that will be built in the coming years. The facility would process all of the liquid manure generated at the farm, removing the pathogens and separating it into clean water, dry organic fertilizer, and organic ammonia. If the project goes to plan, it would lessen the need for long-term storage of liquid manure and eliminate much of the truck traffic required to transport it to the farm’s nearly 10,000 acres that it manages. 


The project plays a role in the agreement Kinnard Farms reached with the state Department of Natural Resources in May. The DNR would not require groundwater monitoring of land application sites if Kinnard Farms can substantially eliminate the use of liquid manure on its field by 2027. Kinnard said in May that the agreement “represents a breakthrough in recognizing the benefits of accommodating farmer-led innovation to drive science-based environmental solutions on Wisconsin dairies.” 


Sedron Technologies’ Varcor system, which processes the liquid manure, is already in use at dairy facilities in Texas and Indiana. 



The presentation is the sixth item on the agenda for the meeting which is scheduled for July 18th in the 4-H Room at the Kewaunee County Fairgrounds’ exposition hall beginning at 8:15 a.m..
