Energy efficiency, conservation and increased utilization of renewable resources are unmistakably important to the future of Michigan agriculture, and ultimately to your farm’s bottom line. And while Michigan Farm Bureau’s 159-page member-developed policy book contains a mere seven pages on energy & technology topics — they pack a punch and clearly outline the organization’s positions on the issues.
What isn’t always clear, though, is how energy opportunities, challenges and technology improvements apply to your unique farm business.
If you’re looking to explore this topic more, join the Michigan Farm Bureau Hitching Post at 7 p.m. on March 23: From Energy Efficiency to Renewables: Powering your Farm for the Future.

“Participants in our virtual session will have the ability to ask questions ranging from how to start an on-farm project to energy technology advancements and from financial considerations to implementation challenges,” Van Gorder said. “We want to allow the participants to determine where the conversation goes based on the answers they’re looking for and information they need.”
