Max Armstrong looks at a new study showing how solar power and livestock production can work together

Max Armstrong shares a report from Oregon State University showing that sheep grazing plays well with solar energy production. Max offers some insight on the study which included comparing lamb growth with animals under panels versus in open country. The shade provided by the panels helps the animals preserve energy and the land is also providing power and more profit.

Farm Progress America is a daily look at key issues in agriculture. It is produced and presented by Max Armstrong, veteran farm broadcaster and host of This Week in Agribusiness.
