This free SFA Soil Health Network event included a full day of programming on the establishment, care and management of cover crops and speakers U. of M. Worthington’s Liz Stahl, farmer Tom Cotter, farmer Ed McNamara, field and equipment demonstrations, and much more.
“The main premise of this field day was to have area farmers talk about why they chose cover crops, why/how they are using them, and what they have learned,” said organizer Blaine Delzer of Dodge SWCD.
The first Plowville event, in 1952, showcased farm technology and drew political candidates Dwight D. Eisenhower and Adlai Stevenson.
