A Farmer Turns Cow Manure Into Drinkable Water!

A Farmer Turns Cow Manure Into Drinkable Water!: "Imagine turning manure into water, and then drinking it! It's probably something most of us would cringe at, but one dairy farmer has been doing that for the last two and a half years.

The Prius driving dairy farmer John Vrieze has been working on a project that he says takes his cow manure, which is 90% water, extracts the nutrients, and turns the rest of the waste into clean, clear drinkable water.

Vrieze says, “Well it’s a great project, because we farmers think we're the greatest environmentalists of them all, we're always trying to figure out how to leave our lands for the next generation, and in better shape than when we got them from out ancestors.”"
