In 1999, the Big Ass Fan Company was born. Kind of. Then called the HVLS Fan Co.
(that’s High Volume, Low Speed—catchy, right?), we first made our mark selling massive
ceiling fans that spun slowly but moved astounding amounts of air. The fans kept large
spaces that lacked air conditioning, such as factories and dairy barns, feeling cool and
comfortable—and soon enough, plenty of other customers wanted in. Things moved fast
after that (and kept moving). Only a few years later, we officially changed our name after
customers kept calling and asking if we made “those big-ass fans.” When churches wanted
to install fans to keep congregations comfortable, we developed the first silent fan motor
to meet their needs.
We created a residential fan that blew away ENERGY STAR® ratings and won awards
worldwide. In 2014, we had the bright idea to create an LED fixture made of heavy-duty
anodized, extruded aluminum so it can handle whatever you can dish out, launching a
division appropriately called Big Ass Light™.
s the sun was rising this AM, I spotted a young deer feasting on grass in one of our smaller pastures near the house. It saw me, and just ambled up to the metal fence and kept casually munching. Then without any effort at all, it grracefully jumped and cleared the fence by 6 ". The fence is 46" tall made of 18gage woven horse fence.ALL WITHOUT A RUNNEY. The deer kept moseying over an alfalfa field and disappeared in the woods, no hurry. It was a challenge.
We have about 100 lambs this year so we alternate on night duty in the paddock and barn. We now have a **** pot of coyotes and feral dogs that require "attention" daily. I check the ewes and lambs , See if any more lambs are born and often have to deliver the little shits so they are able to get colostrum in the first 8 hours of life. . Then I use an elastrator to cut the tails.
Today it became a beautiful morning and not too cold, only like 38. I was in the barns by 400AM, so its a life.
Me, I get up at around noon...been doing it a year and a half.
