    You ordered one with a main breaker?
    If not, you should get a breaker for it, maybe 80 or 100Amp one

    You struck up my veterinarian curiosity. If I dealt with large/farm animals I would have known the acronym better. As I look into the topic, it is a "Concentrated Animal Feeding Operation". Basically a facility where they grow/feed the animals till ready for slaughter.

    I imagine maybe @PCTaco might be somewhat familiar with the topic?

    A person living in a community with CAFOs who is going to gripe always has the option of moving. But to stay around and gripe about things they don't like which they cannot change... just makes for an ugly, tense community. Move out of the area, or just move out of the country. Don't get me started about those types not recognizing that they're living in luxury off the efforts of an entire nation of people who are mostly meat eating "Mericans" who pay their taxes, contribute, fight for, and make this nation the great land of liberty it is. Without food for the majority of the nation, they wouldn't have the nation they live in. So they might as well take their hippie ideals and go fend for themselves in some third world nation where they can have their organic "ethical" this-and-that and yet also realize they'll have to defend their property/possessions/family themselves from raiding bandits and corrupt officials. Or if they're so fired up with positive energy to make a change in the food animal industry, then why not use that energy and thought get into the industry and make situations better for animals. (Watch the Temple Grandin movie and do likewise)

    I know a thing or two about CAFOs. It's definitely "Concentrated" and not "confined".

    They tend to draw a lot more ire than a regular farm mainly because of how concentrated they are. There are a lot of downsides to CAFOs including increased disease risk, lower quality(higher fat) percentage in the animals, noise, stink, etc.

    CAFOs basically buy animals at a certain weight, feed them commercially produced feed until they reach another weight, and sell them at profit.

    This is also becoming more prevalent in the dairy industry due to the need to produce as much milk per animal at the lowest cost per animal. A lot of dairy farms have stopped being the big family farm growing their own food and morphed into a CAFO where they just feed and milk.

    Hmm, looks like they did a play on words of what CAFO really means. It started out as one sign and now it's grown to multiple. One of them said something about contaminating the water supply and then another about how much water they use. Quite hilarious if you ask me; I've always wondered what that stuff was all about. There's dozens of those places around here, just the way of life. Honestly it's better for the operations to be out here in rural Fulton county than say a more populated area...

    I can see both sides of the argument. It would really come down to how they are fed. Concentrating them is a recipe for disease, much like what has happened to CWD in deer farms. 6 acres is plenty to avoid that depending on how many head are concentrated in that 6 acres. You're a vet and have more knowledge on this though. I read an article on feeding deer with corn once that made me pour it randomly and spread out instead of a pile. Now i just plant perennial and annuals instead of treking bushels of corn through the woods in a foot of snow.

    almost white out here right now. It isn't sticking to anything but the ground though. It can stay that way, I hate cleaning if off the truck. I'm hoping for the 3" in the forecast, next 4 days I'll be sitting in the woods. A little contrast is welcomed!

    One of those (or similar) should be installed between a battery and fuse box, because you know, #safety

    I have a brand new 80A breaker that I'll let you have for $30. Same style as the one @Bastek posted. I bought it with my Bussman panel but it didn't fit mounting point.

    It's in my for sale thread here:
