A Different Type of Organic.  

Posted by Wyatt


Today I am going to talk to you about a different organic, by definition denoting a relation between elements of something such that they fit together harmoniously as necessary parts of a whole. I bet most people would not consider how well farmers have integrated green technology. In order to maintain dugouts or ponds farmers and ranchers will fence off the area and pump the water from the dugout to the water trough. To preserve the water system it requires the usage of power, now if you are close to electricity it not a problem, however most of the time the farmer is in the middle of the field with absolutely no electricity near by. Therefore systems have been designed using solar, wind and water power. On our ranch we tend to use solar panels, with a few batteries attached the system can charge when the cattle are grazing and use the electricity when they are drinking.  Farmers are always looking for new and innovative ideas to make life easier and more environmentally friendly.

Very cool... when we lived on a small hobby farm, we collected water in rain barrels and used a tap in the barrel to take out what we needed. To ensure that the water didn't go "bad", we watered our animals and vegetable garden using old sprinkler hoses and gravity. The animals and plants appreciated that the water wasn't ice cold and we helped recycle water. :)
