The manure fed into the  proposed anaerobic digester would come from an estimated 20,000 cattle housed at nine dairy farms in Brown County.

RICE LAKE - The Barron County Holstein Association Twilight Meeting is set for 7:30 p.m., Friday, Aug. 18. Hosts for the event are Image-Point Dairy, owned by Jeff, Debbie, Katie, and Collin Wille, 2291 16th Street, Rice Lake.
