Ranch irrigation system selection can be a big decision. There are many factors to consider in your ranch irrigation system.
At B & B Irrigation, we specialize in ranch irrigation systems, and design, build and install complete systems in Colorado, Utah and Wyoming. As a matter of fact, we were named the coveted 2010 Agricultural Business of the Year from the renowned Colorado First Conservation District.
Here are the primary factors in switching or installing a ranch irrigation system:
Layout of the land:
How can you maximize crop yields and pasture fields with the layout of your land? Most land areas have unique characteristics that have to be taken into account. For example, is their a large gully or gulch that separates one part of your field from another? Do you extend your irrigation system beyond that natural border by installing a custom irrigation bridge to fully maximize your land use?
Access to Water:
Where do you get your primary water from? What are the best ways to incorporate water pumps and flow meters to maximize your water use? We’ve helped hundreds of ranches make the most use of their water.
We use T-L Pivots for almost all of our irrigation systems. They are widely considered to be the best in the industry Because a T-L Pivot system uses water pressure, or hydro power, there are no electric or fuel costs. This can save a ranch thousands of dollars a year, and tens of thousands of dollars over the lifetime of their irrigation system.
Piping and Installation:
B & B has a wide variety of PVC piping and installation configurations. We evaluate your land and recommend the best piping, T-L pivot numbers, water pumps and any necessary flow meters to maximize your ranch irrigation system.
B & B carries a wide range of the best organic fertilizers to bring your soil back in alignment. Heavy use of chemical fertilizers can cause long-term issues with water absorption, soil quality and mineral content of your land.
Repair and Service of Ranch Irrigation Systems:
We can service and repair almost any ranch irrigation system. Through our 40 years of experience, we have probably seen it, fixed it, and brought it back to its full operating potential.
In certain instances, we utilize satellite imaging that can tell us even more about your land’s unique characteristic. And the latest T-L pivots offers GPS functionality that can send alerts to your phone or email.
