Five-G Consulting was founded for the express purpose of providing custom Design and Engineering services primarily for dairy and livestock handling facilities. The founders have been engaged in this highly specialized agricultural engineering activity since the early 1960’s.
The goal of our company is to provide a cost effective total systems approach to planning modern, state-of-the-art facilities as well as the upgrading of existing ones.
Services range from overall planning, specific problem solving and feasibility studies to complete engineering and specifications. Each project is custom designed to meet the client’s specific needs, conditions and resources, drawing upon the extensive experience that Five-G personnel have achieved from working on all types and sizes of dairies and other livestock facilities throughout the United States and around the globe.
The design staff at Five-G has worked on dairy projects ranging in size from 100 cows to 20,000 cows. We have designed dairies in climates as diverse as those found in the Arabian Desert and Alaskan Tundra. The scope varies from independent owner/operator to those found in dairy departments in agricultural universities and other dairy research facilities.
Dairy sanitation requirements, herd health needs and pollution control regulations have become more stringent. These factors plus the ever increasing cost of building construction and equipment emphasize the need for careful up-front, long-range planning, regardless of the country or continent. Sound planning is crucial for not only construction of new facilities, but for remodelling, expansion, and modernization of existing dairies as well. Sound, long-range planning is just as essential for the small dairy as the large as they strive to meet the challenges of the future.
The Five-G principals have focused on this specific area of engineering to serve dairymen worldwide. We work with the suppliers of modern dairy equipment, agricultural equipment, agricultural universities and dairy breed associations to develop new designs, concepts and equipment aimed at solving specific industry needs. We invariably help our clients develop modern dairy operations that are substantially better than industry norms.
