Bay Lake Farm raises alligators for food. The farm, located near Groveland, FL, recently added a processing slab where they prepare the gator meat for market. It was poured by Concrete Life Construction of Center Hill, FL, using 25 cubic yards of County Materials’ Ready-Mix Concrete with fiber mesh added for enhanced resiliency.
Farms can be challenging work environments, and farm structures need to be built of tough materials that will endure over time. Agricultural construction professionals rely on ready-mix concrete for its lasting performance. Structures built with ready-mix are resistant to natural and manmade elements, including livestock damage, rodent infestations, machinery, chemicals, and harsh weather. With minimal maintenance, concrete can have a service life of 30 years or more.
In addition, a concrete surface made with ready-mix will reduce energy expenses during its lifetime because it absorbs and releases heat, reducing temperature fluctuations and controlling heat loss or gain. Plus, the light-reflective gator processing slab will minimize the heat-island effect and reduce the need for additional lighting, while improving visibility and safety.
The choice of ready-mix will also provide many additonal benefits to Bay Lake Farm, including fire resistance, low emissions, and disease control. Plus, County Materials’ Ready-Mix is locally sourced, so waste and transportation emissions were minimized during the processing slab’s construction.
