Description Solar-powered watering systems provide an excellent way to protect water quality and promote healthy livestock. The Snohomish Conservation District installed a solar-powered watering system at a cattle ranch near Arlington, WA, and developed a loaner program so that other ranchers could “kick the tires” on this new watering technique before purchasing one themselves. Read about what the District learned and how this off-stream watering technique can help you comply with state and local laws while raising livestock for profit or pleasure.
