In-text Citation Example:

Across the United States, dairy farms are increasing in size resulting in more manure being produced in concentrated areas. Facing increased regulatory pressure, dairy farms are looking for alternative methods to meet nutrient management concerns. Many large dairies are addressing these concerns by using anaerobic digester (AD) technology coupled with nutrient recovery systems (Yorgey et al., 2014). ADs generate electricity which is commonly used to power farms in the area and more recently trucks as well (Yaccino, 2013).
