Electric cooperatives were built to help serve rural communities. Serving a county with no stoplights or even railroads, Nobles Cooperative Electric (NCE) knows exactly what it means to serve its 6,300 rural members.
Lingen Dairy is one of the notable businesses NCE is proud to serve. In addition to the fourth-generation dairy farm, the business has grown to provide services such as custom harvesting and manure hauling.
The owners have implemented innovative electric solutions, such as robotics and dairy plate coolers, at the dairy. The robotics installed at their operation help with the labor of milking 400 cows, providing the flexibility that enabled them to start an ice cream business.
