Welcome to Energy Estimator: Animal Housing

Energy Estimator: Animal Housing Awareness Tool Splash Graphic Energy Estimator: Animal Housing is the fourth tool in the suite of awareness tools the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) has developed to increase energy awareness in agriculture.

This NRCS energy awareness tool is designed to inform you of the energy cost centers and help you estimate the energy costs for three animal housing operations on your farm or ranch. NRCS technical specialists have developed energy cost models for housing dairy cows, swine, and poultry.

This tool does not provide operation-specific recommendations; it provides an idea of the type of energy cost savings that a producer might expect from making simple changes to the operation. Results should not be construed as actual savings, but only as estimates. The tool evaluates options based on user input.
