Case Studies Agriculture

Fusion Ag Solutions

Agriculture is often about delayed gratification—hard work, attention to precise measurements and yields that can’t always be predicted or controlled, all contributing to long-awaited harvests.  But plenty of contractors serving commercial growers take a shortsighted approach to the placement and installation of their farming infrastructure. Equipment like feed mills, grain elevators and grain bins are […]

Milis Flatwork

The Wisconsin Milk Marketing Board says that at last look, the dairy industry was bringing in over $43 billion to the state’s economy, with much of the credit due to the almost 1.3 million cows on 9,520 licensed dairy farms. On average, each of those prolific bovines produces 2,739 gallons of milk a year—and, of […]

Dacotah Grain Systems

Drive through the Midwest’s vast farmland and you’ll see massive metal structures rising from the horizon, their industrial appearance contrasting against the natural landscape. These are large, commercial grain systems, and at the heart of each are grain bins—vented, silver, corrugated steel structures that store dry grains, typically corn and soybeans. According to the National […]

Braswell Family Farms

But someone did, and it’s very likely that someone was involved at a massive greenhouse and distribution operation in the north-central Kentucky city of Paris, or its second facility in Granville, Illinois. […]

Convention says salt is salt. It’s the inexpensive white salt you buy at the store, which is 97 to 99 percent sodium chloride in solid form. But when salt is extracted from the ground or the sea, it contains much more, including 60-plus trace minerals. Most companies refine salt, extracting those minerals and selling them […]

M-Mig Construction

In the world of dairy and agricultural construction, there’s a growing knowledge gap. In many cases, fourth-generation farmers are running farms built by past generations, so they haven’t had to build much from the ground up. As a result, they’ve had less experience pulling shingles, running pipe and pouring concrete. In other instances, the next […]
