Stray Voltage Program
Farm animals may be sensitive to electricity
Animals are more sensitive to electric currents than humans. If you notice sensitive behavior in cows and livestock on your farm, such as a tendency to shy away from objects or a hesitancy to enter stalls or milking parlors, contact your electric cooperative. You may have stray voltage issues, caused by poor grounding or defective electrical equipment. For assistance, contact Polk-Burnett, 800-421-0283, ext. 322.
