the business of farming, every decision matters,
including managing input costs, and controlling
emissions. Farmers are looking for ways to get more

animals warm and dry, allowing the nationís
poultry and swine producers to operate
provides the hot water required to clean and

bromide, a chemical fumigant that is being
phased out by the EPA.
grain-drying systems give farmers precise
control over grain moisture content, limit
fungal and bacterial growth, and can help manage
harvesting in variable weather conditions.
incineration offers one of the most bio-secure
