This North Dakota State University Extension publication provides an introductory checklist of energy efficiency opportunities for greenhouses.
This North Dakota State University Extension publication provides energy efficiency information for grain drying.
This North Dakota State University Extension publication provides an introductory overview of energy auditing for a farmstead.
This Wisconsin Extension publication concerns energy conservation as a result of heat recovery in continuous flow column dryers.
This NCAT ATTRA publication briefly discusses some of the considerations and potential benefits involved in the use of animal power and offers resources for further information and equipment.
This NCAT ATTRA publication provides an overview of how dairy farms can implement efficiency improvements and energy-saving technologies that can reduce energy consumption and energy-related costs.
This North Dakota State University Extension article concerns energy efficiency opportunities in tractors and field operations.
This NCAT ATTRA publication describes how to fi nd the net water application rate for any irrigation system. It further explains how to calculate the number of hours the system should be operated, describes several ways to measure flowing water in an open channel or pipeline, and offers suggestions for irrigating with limited water supplies.
This NCAT ATTRA publication explains how to maintain irrigation pumps, motors, and engines for peak efficiency. The publication includes descriptions and diagrams of recommended installations, checklists for maintenance tasks, and a troubleshooting guide. Each system component is treated separately and maintenance tasks are broken down by how frequently they need to be done.
This publication by Penn State Extension provides energy saving tips for Dairy Farmers.
This Wisconsin Public Service publication concerns high-volume low-speed (HVLS) fans as a ventilation option for dairy and livestock farmers. These large fans, which range in size from 16 to 24 feet, provide energy-efficient air movement throughout the barn at a fraction of the energy cost of high-speed fans.
This NCAT ATTRA publication describes the installation of the heat recovery equipment and provides an analysis of data on humidity and temperature in the winter growing tunnels used in the project. Harvest records from the 2015-2016 winter growing season and energy usage data were used to determine what impact, if any, the ventilation system had on profitability of the winter-grown crops.
The article concerns the performance of a solar water heater with gas backup and an air-source heat-pump water-heater at a dairy farm in Ireland.
