Stray Voltage Analysis
Stray voltage is an ongoing concern for dairy farms. Stray voltage occurs when the electrically conductive parts of agricultural buildings and equipment carry a slight electrical charge. Usually the current levels involved with stray voltage are much lower than what would be harmful or noticeable to humans. Stray voltage is important, however, because dairy cattle are much more sensitive to electricity. If stray voltage is present it can affect the milk production in dairy cows.
If you think you might have stray voltage on your farm, please contact the Cooperative. We have trained personnel to assist you.
In conjunction with our Stray Voltage Program, Chippewa Valley Electric participates in the State-wide Safety First Farm Rewiring Program.
