Feelin’ Earthy? Go Green at Your Barn

April 29, 2015 2 min read

earth dayHaving you been trying to become more “green” at your barn? With Earth Day just past, now is a great time to start! Not only is going green environmentally friendly, it can actually save you a few bucks along the way! Here are just a few ideas: •Conserve water – Conserving water is actually very easy! Simply add nozzles to the hoses, dump your water buckets in the pastures, and use a large, clean water barrel to collect rainwater. •Solar power – Solar panels can be an investment but the power that they provide is very beneficial. You will be able to power your farm throughout the year. Solar panels can be used on electric fences, barn lights, etc. •Composting – Composting manure is a great way to get rid of it. The compost can be used in areas around the farm that need a little help, or it can even be sold to local farmers. •Line drying – Rather than using a dryer, line dry the fabrics around your farm. This will prevent shrinkage. You can air dry saddle pads, leg wraps, etc. •Recycle – Make it easy to recycle cans and bottles around your barn. Have a designated area for it. You can also reuse supplement tubs and other things. •Reuse – Tons of items around the barn are reusable! Grain sacks can be used as trash bags, twine can be used ANYWHERE, old ropes can become home decor; the possibilities are endless! Going green is easy and it will help the environment AND your checkbook! Be creative when you go green – there are so many ways to be more conservative! Feel free to add to the list above, we’d love to hear about it! For more information on going green, visit: http://www.proequinegrooms.com/index.php/tips/green-horsekeeping/green-up-the-barn/
