Pine County to Host Discussion Series on Conservation in Agriculture

Pine County’s U of M extension office and Soil and Water Conservation District have partnered to host a series to discuss the best practices of conservation in agriculture.

The first meeting will be held December 19, 2023, starting at 10 am at The Heidelbergers Rock Creek Café. Grain producers who are currently practicing no-till, strip-till, or reduce till and those interested in adopting the practice will have the opportunity to discuss successes and challenges to adoption.

The second meeting will be held on January 18, 2024, starting at 4 p.m. at the North Pine Government Center in Sandstone. The focus will be on rotational grazing system implementation.

The third meeting will be held on February 22, 2024, at Tobies Restaurant & Bakery starting at 10 a.m. The topic for this meeting will be sustainable practices and soil health for small vegetable farms.

The purpose of these meetings is to host an informal conversation between producers who are experienced with these practices and producers who are interested in adopting them. The U of M says it will provide data from recent soil health research completed at 100 local small vegetable farms across the state.

Registration can be done through the U of M Extention website.
