2016 Wisconsin Cover Crop Conference

The 2016 Wisconsin Cover Crops Conference will be held Tuesday August 30 in the Lancaster area. The one-day conference, whose theme is “Coupling soil health and economics,” will feature a bus tour highlighting the operations of several local cover crop users, both dairy/ livestock and cash grain, as well as cover crop research at the Lancaster Research Station. Special emphasis will be placed on using cover crops to improve the “bottom line.” Continuing education credits for agricultural professionals will be available.
