Sustainable farming is more than just a buzzword, it is the future of your land, the industry, and future generations of farmers. Making your operation a more sustainable one is a daunting task, but one small change can make a big impact. By installing a Ritchie, you can make an enormous impact. Here are four ways that installing a Ritchie benefits you, and the planet.
Conserve Your Water
Water is becoming scarcer and more valuable by the day. And water is the most essential nutrient for your animals. Ritchie helps you navigate the tightrope between providing your animals all the hydration they need while conserving as much water as possible. Your water remains fresh and doesn’t go stagnant. Gallons go to your animals but don’t spill out of tanks. Your time is spent on more productive tasks than watering.
Water is precious, and we are here to save you every last drop.
Protect Your Land
On your land, everything is connected. Your animals depend on the food and water available on your acreage. So, it’s critical to keep the land clean, surface waters plentiful and the soil healthy, doing all you can to reduce erosion and nutritional run-off. Ritchie manufacture products that last, ensuring the sustainability of your land is lasting.
Use Less Energy
Maintaining a low carbon footprint includes decreasing your operation’s energy usage and is more than environmentally friendly – it’s business savvy. Many farmers and ranchers are tapping into alternative energy sources to help keep the fresh water flowing. And emphasizing energy efficiency can do more than save you money. With many rural electric co-ops offering rebates – it can pay you money. Working together, we can reduce both your water and power consumption. And, as a result, turn the tide on energy efficiency.
