As an environmental consultant, one of the most common questions I get from clients is about maintaining synthetically lined lagoons. Check out my new article in Progressive Dairyman (link in bio) to see some tips and tricks for designing and maintaining these lagoons. . . And yes, this is a picture of some of our pretty ladies eating their breakfast on a foggy morning. I figured you would much rather see cows than ?. But if you are interested, swipe right ➡️ and you can see a mechanical solids separator with a two celled lagoon in the background. . Dairy farmers collect all the water used to clean their barns in lagoons. This "green water" is then used to provide their fields with water and organic nutrients. The crops in these fields are used to feed the cows. On a dairy, one gallon of water can be recyled up to 4 times!? . Thanks @dane.goble for providing some insight on this topic!

Farming is hard. I don't care if you have a fancy huge farm with acres as far as the eye can see or if you have a humble mini farm in your backyard. Either way, there's going to be days that shake you to your core and that make you wonder why the heck you're still chasing your dream. I know I'm not alone in this thought process. I've had days that I've literally wept as I've watched my gardens wash away in a wall of flood water. I've had days that I run outside after a tornado had passed and prayed that the greenhouse is still standing. Heck, I've had days that I'm shouting every cuss word I know as I'm dripping with sweat in the hot and humid summer days while I'm fixing yet issue that needs immediate attention. But guess what? I press on. We press on. We all do. Every single day, we all have another chance to do better, to move forward and to help others. Today is a new day. You can do whatever you set your mind to. I just know it. I believe in you. Cast away the fears and chase that dream. Go out and MAKE things happen. Make today a great day friends.
