It’s no secret that animal agriculture is put under a microscope for environmental sustainability and ecological impact. In fact, it’s the original reason Settje Agri-Services was founded in 1997. A professional agricultural engineering firm needed to act as the middleman between livestock producers and a growing governmental regulatory environment.
As SASE began this process, we learned that every livestock producer treats their land and animals as if it will be there forever. To further this, we continually ensure that all of our customers meet county zoning, state and federal requirements for their animal agriculture operations. We ensure that livestock producers meet deadlines for permitting and constructing of their operations, and engineer every aspect of the facilities to contain solid manure and effluent.
Through this process, livestock producers are able to recycle nutrients and create an operation that regenerates in growth, and is sustainable for generations of farmers to come.
