Dane County is about to get a second plant that would convert raw waste from cows into electricity for area residents. Media reports say a new community manure digester will be built west of Middleton at the Ziegler Dairy Farms. Construction began earlier this week. Dane County's first digester opened two years ago near Waunakee. It holds up to three-million gallons of cow manure, which is made into electricity and compost for bulk fertilizer. Another goal of both digesters is to keep phosphorus out of Dane County's lakes.
