The state's energy czar wants to harness the output of more than a-half million cows in Idaho.
The state is the nation's number-three milk producer and those cows produce tons of number-two.
The idea is to process cow manure to create methane gas that would power electric generators.
Idaho Gov. C.L. "Butch" Otter is pushing a package of tax credits and waivers to make the poop-to-power proposal a reality.
