Cows + Biofuel = Financially Solvent Family Farms?

From the East Valley Tribune - Land of milk and biofuel

Using farm waste streams for energy is an old idea and been used in Cuba to survive the U.S. embargo. If farmers can use the byproducts of their farm to create biofuel then this makes it much more likely that the land will remain rural. And if farmers put their land under conservation easement and construct wind turbines maybe they can even make good money?

Seems like a good option for northern Michigan farmers.
