    BENSON -- They say an optimist is someone who, if you lock him in a room 
full of horse manure, will dig right in, hoping to find a pony. 
    Having spent the better part of his life toiling in the science of animal 
droppings, Conly Hansen is one such optimist. Hansen's prized pony, though, 
has been the discovery of a good way to harness the energy and financial 
potential of animal waste. 
    "It's a steady energy supply," says Hansen, explaining that the daily 
dung from 10 pigs, for example, can power a 100-watt light bulb around the clock.
