Cow Pleasant Dairy, Inc made their upgrades work for them

Founded in 2010, Cow Pleasant Dairy in Weidman relies on dependable energy to provide quality dairy products. Because without it, it would take days for their operation to catch up.

 

In addition to needing reliable energy, Cow Pleasant Dairy was looking to expand its operation and save money. They added a new 84-stall rotary parlor, a free stall barn for nearly 3,500 cows and LED lighting to improve overall efficiency.
