The humble yet beautiful cow is a producer of many glorious things.
From milk to butter and cheese, and even deliciously creamy yoghurts, they give us a whole plethora of dairy goods to choose from every day!
But while they're doing all of this, they're also producing lots of poo. Like, *lots* of it. And with such a constant supply landing on its farms, the dairy company Arla has been getting super creative with what they do with it as part of its Poo Power Projects.
To showcase the potential in poo power, Arla has created Cow Patteries, aka batteries made with energy from cow pats! Geddit?
Arla hopes that in the future, our homes could be powered by cow poo.
But how do you convert poo into energy? The process is called "anaerobic digestion"!
Right now, the UK doesn't have the right infrastructure to implement biogas into our electricity grid.
But Arla knows that it's onto something from experimenting so alongside its Cow Patteries concept, its farmers have also been fuelling their farms with manure.
So next time you walk by a field of cows, think about how soon they could not just fill your fridge with milk, but also power it too!
