Magnetic Fields from Solar Panels

Asked February 22, 2013, 10:24 AM EST

I have been asked by a dairy farmer who is renting part of his farm for a solar panel "field", if there is any problem associated with magnetic fields. He will be keeping his dairy farm on the neighboring land parcels and he is worried about possible negative effects on his cows (ie. loss of production, pregnancy problems, ...).
Any thoughts on this will be appreciated.

I know of no negative effects of photovoltaic panels and livestock. This farmer should not be concerned
The panels should be fenced, to keep out livestodk- because of the chance the cattle will destroy the panels.
