Operating a dairy farm is energy-intensive. Lights, fans, pumps and motors consume a lot of electricity. Reducing the amount of electricity used around the farm can put money back in your pocket. On average, dairy farms who have implemented recommended energy conservation practices have seen a 46% reduction in their energy costs. Interested in learning more? The purpose of this program is to help you understand how you can reduce your energy expenses. You will hear from specialists from MSU and MSU Extension, as well as power company representatives and farmers with practical experience in implementing energy conservation practices that saved them money. You will also receive practical instruction from NRCS-RD personnel on applying for grant dollars for energy conservation practices. Michigan farmers have enjoyed great success in getting these dollars. Please join us at the location nearest your farm!
