Dee River Ranch, owned by Annie Dee, Mike Dee and their 10 brothers and sisters, is located near the Mississippi-Alabama state line near Aliceville. Their business includes a successful cattle operation, along with a diversified crop portfolio including corn, soybeans, wheat and cotton.
When the Dees were looking for a solution that would allow them to better manage their water and transition to irrigated production, they found Lindsay Corporation and a host of Lindsay companies with the experience, products and services to help them pull it all together.
“There are several companies under the Lindsay umbrella that contributed to this important project, from pumps and pivots to remote telemetry,” said Lindsay Vice President of Sales & Marketing Randy Wood.
During the Dee River Ranch/Lindsay Irrigation Technology Field Day, recently installed Zimmatic center pivots, Watertronics pump stations and ezWireless-designed broadband telemetry will be on display to showcase how these Lindsay solutions work together to help growers optimize yields and save water, energy and labor.
“Our ranch is dedicated to land conservation and environmentally-friendly farming techniques, and we are excited to see this integrated irrigation technology project come to fruition on our farm,” said Annie Dee. “This project will help us mitigate risk and make our farming operation more efficient and sustainable.”
Wood said he was supportive of the Dees' innovative idea and the hard work they've put into the project.
“We commend Annie and Mike and their entire team for the vision they’ve demonstrated at this site—creating one of the most technologically advanced, irrigated farming operations in the world,” said Wood. “They are working hard to produce more while consuming less. They are true leaders,and we are proud to partner with them at this site.”
