Turn Off The Faucet

By April 4, 2020 No Comments

As we all have seen, climate change has significantly changed the way rain falls. Rain events over 2” have become the norm. As an example, in Wisconsin we’ve seen at least three 100-year storms and at least five 50-year storms in the last decade. The three highest volume rain events in the United States have happened in the last three years.

The picture illustrates the soil moisture changes throughout the United States over the past 6 years.

Farming is taking the brunt of this with fields too wet to apply manure, plant, or harvest, as was the case last fall when crops remained in the fields well into December in some cases. As a result, manure handling is becoming a major concern for livestock farmers with storage being stressed and windows for application shortening.

We have solutions to help reduce the water volume farmers are dealing with. These include proven technologies to basically eliminate leachate water and/or reduce manure volume by more than 50%. We know every operation and situation is different, so we strive to tailor a system that meets each farmer’s unique needs.
