We live in a fast-paced world where technology and innovations are continually evolving. Agriculture is no exception to this trend. Farming technologies and practices are developing daily as big data and industry leaders help us understand more about what we are capable of. In an effort to remain a competitive business we are constantly exploring and brainstorming new opportunities to better ourselves as agriculture professionals, stewards of the land, and caretakers of livestock. On this page you will find some of the areas we are currently researching as possibilities for growth and expansion. If you are an expert in any of these fields and you feel you could contribute to this growth, or if you are simply interested in learning more about why we are exploring these options, please feel free to use our contacts page to get in touch with us. We are always interested in teaming up with entrepreneurs and ground-breakers in the agriculture and renewable energy industries.
We currently use 100% of the biogas produced by our digester as fuel for the engine that is coupled to our 1060 kW generator. Increased biogas production from our current tank (or second tank) could be utilized in many different ways. One of the utilizations RAKR is exploring is BioCNG (Compressed Natural Gas). The BioCNG would be used by CNG vehicles on the farm and possibly as the fuel we burn in our grain dryer. As our ability to produce this fuel could greatly exceed the total farm usage, we would be looking for another environmentally conscious business that is looking to replace diesel fuel with CNG.
