This study provides a thorough understanding of dairy operations, especially the overall electricity consumption by the dairy farm industry. The applications that use electricity on a dairy farm include lighting, electric water heating, ventilation, milk cooling, milk harvesting, as well as other applications. This paper identifies various literature surveys from the World Dairy Exposition (October 2012) that detail the share of electricity used by each of the categories; ways to improve the efficiency of operations using energy efficiency technologies also have been identified. Further, a review of water usage on dairy farms is included in this paper.
