MADISON — A field day near Madison will focus on cover crops and using alfalfa mulch for nitrogen credit before corn. Start time is 1 p.m. for the Aug. 23 field day, “Cover Crops and Alfalfa Mulch,” organized by the nonprofit Rural Advantage and University of Minnesota Extension.
Farmers are the original conservationists. Back before the ideas behind environmentalism took hold, dairy farmers were caring for their land by using good conservation practices on the land and recycling manure to enrich their crops. They did this because it was the right thing to do for their families, who lived on the land, and because it made good business sense.
Hay prices are high, and demand for good quality forage is increasing. Producers in central Minnesota will have an opportunity to participate in a forage seminar entitled: “Practical solutions for today’s challenges and vision for tomorrow’s opportunities.”
