Solar 2 Installed and Generating
A second grid of solar panels was installed the summer of 2021 on the new shop/garage at Penury Hill. The 24-panel unit covers the entire south-facing roof. The unit will provide enough energy to charge the Roth's next vehicle purchase - an electric car.
"Our goal is to produce enough electricity to support our usage," Jerry said. "It's our way of leaving the earth better than we found it." Caring for the environment has been a life-long focus of the Roth's.
Contented Cows on Grass
Neighbors, friends and people who learn where we live all comment on what nice looking cows we have. They see them in the pasture along County 51 and see what a quality herd of Angus we are raising.
Jerry analyzes potential herd sires to be sure of ease of calving and high rate-of-gain. Those traits promote long life for the mother cows and ensure that the feeder calves are finished and ready for market within 13-14 months. It's important to remember that all that is accomplished without the use of any growth hormones.
As we continue to breed and develop a fully registered Angus herd, we expect our beef to maintain its quality and deliver customer satisfaction.
We have a heavy footprint already here in our country. But we can make individual decisions that will affect the footprint of the future.
Do you buy endangered wood products or insist on cultivated wood products that are raised sustainably? Do you hunt or fish for only what you will eat and practice catch and release? Do you buy at local farmers markets? Do you support American workers by buying made in the USA products?
It is your choice whether you work with the resources you have or deplete the resources meant for future generations.
Think locally to have an impact globally. Our eyes must be focused ahead...our mission must be to protect the environment and our lifestyle for tomorrow. It is your choice and your responsibility to take small actions that take root and grow.
