BVT-MCF Corporate Responsibility

Mesquite Cattle Feeders and Border Valley Trading - Turlock solar projects are helping to reduce GHG emissions by close to 800 tons/year.  

  • Border Valley’s proposed 2013 solar project for Brawley operations will help reduce GHG emissions by an additional 600 tons/year.
  • Border Valley’s 2007 fleet conversion from diesel to Nat Gas in 2007 continues to reduce GHG emissions by over 1,000 tons/year.
  • Mesquite Cattle Feeders recent boiler conversion from diesel to Nat Gas is helping to reduce GHG emissions by close to 350 tons/year.
  • Border Valley’s proposed LNG fleet expansion in Q4 of 2013 will help reduce GHG emissions by close to 400 tons/year (versus diesel trucks).

Through a collective effort to help the environment, Border Valley and Mesquite Cattle Feeders hope to reduce GHG emissions by +3,000 tons/year by 2013 year-end. The annual GHG benefit from the combined projects would be similar to removing a 1000 small cars that drive close to 10,000,000 miles/year.
