Session 1a: Dairy and Livestock Best Practices for Energy Efficiency

Dairy and other Livestock farms have among the highest energy use of all types of agriculture. Fortunately, there are many technologies farmers can implement on the farm to significantly reduce their energy usage and utility costs. Some of these technologies can also improve cow comfort and farm production processes.
