Dairy farm could make ethanol from manure

There are ethanol biorefineries using methane from cow manure as a power source for the facility, but this if the first I've heard about actually making ethanol from manure. Methane also derived from the manure would provide power at the facility in this case as well. The process not only results in a renewable motor fuel, but odor is reduced at the farm as well. This is a major concern in some areas, and could make the process more attractive to farmers.
