Excellent Stewards of the Land

Because of our commitment to being the best stewards possible of our natural resources, Danner Farms has implemented these conservation measures:

  • Web-based grain aeration system equipped with weather station, grain moisture and temperature cables in bins to run aeration fans only when needed, resulting in:

    • 70% Less electricity consumption

    • Assurance that our grain is in top condition

  • Replaced old incandescent, halogen and fluorescent lighting with much more efficient and longer-lasting LED lighting
