Going Green at Brock Dairy Farm
I think we all can agree that Michigan is a beautiful state! We are so fortunate to be surrounded by bodies of water and gorgeous trees. We all have a part in caring for, preserving, and protecting the planet we live on.
To help us do that here on our farm, we took part in an energy audit put on by Michigan State University. The experts came onto both of our farms and inspected all of the ways we use energy and then came up with a detailed plan of things we can do to become more energy efficient and sustain our planet earth. The first thing we decided to change was our light bulbs. We have replaced many incandescent bulbs with LED (light emitting diodes). They use only 15-20% of the energy of a normal bulb, while producing better light.
We plan to continue to incorporate more of the ideas from our audit to be as green as possible. If we each do a little much will be accomplished!
