When the electricity goes out, most farm tasks are at a standstill until the power returns. This can cause major problems on a dairy farm. Some dairymen install a back-up generator so that they always have an available source of power.
We visited Kohler Power Systems in Kohler, Wis., to see the generator production process. The article, "How a generator is made," appeared on the Young Dairyman page of the May 25, 2016, issue on page 368.
Additional photos and clips from our tour have been compiled in this video. We hope you enjoy it!
