Dr. Paul Dettloff Audio: Safely Managing DC Current & Livestock
Dr. Paul Dettloff
Recorded live at the 2021 Eco-Ag Conference & Trade Show in Covington, Kentucky, Dec. 6-9, 2021.
Grounded AC current produced by electric utilities returns to its source (substations) by way of the earth. The returning current energy is in the form of DC current. This returns miles by OHMs law, the path of least resistance. What happens when dry, sandy gravel laden earth with 5 OHMs resistance has an equipotential plane dairy set up with rerod having only 2 OHMs resistance, and the current seeks out the 2 OHM facility? What happens when a metal water trough is close to a grounded fencer? When (EMFs) an electro-magnetic field, in the air, puts DC current onto anything that will conduct electricity Many more scenarios are to be covered and discussed.
