USDA Announces Incentives for Energy Audits

Dairy Energy Services (DES) reminds producers that the cut-off date to apply for an Agricultural Energy Management Plan (AgEMP) is February 3. Offered through the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), an AgEMP covers the cost of an energy audit, which can provide producers with a comprehensive review of their energy usage and can identify where they can target future farm savings.
