>would the effect be lessened by substituting conductables for composites,
No. Composites are better as they do not contribute to the problem.

For example, you will not find stray voltage from a plastic water cup to the floor or from a dry wooden gate to a concrete wall.

>and running all on 220V?
If the stray voltage is coming from something bad like cracked, wet insulation on a wire, then 220 V won't help.

But if the problem is from neutral current, then obviously using 220 greatly reduces the neutral current.

we in VT also make a lot of cheese, but i suspect that there are more NY cows employed than VT cows.
maybe VT cows could compete given rubber boots?

Of interest , and out of concern for the cows well being, i did notice a 110V fencer at a farm today. They have a rod on one leg, and the fence on the other. I did wonder about it having the rod in the barn's milk room.
