A free workshop for livestock, dairy and crop producers interested in integrating cover crops and livestock into their operations will be held from noon-3 p.m. March 25 at Lakes Cafe, 136 W Main St, Perham. This event will discuss designing cover crop blends to improve soil health and produce livestock feed.
Limited to 20 participants, registrants should bring: a field photo or map of one field in which to integrate cover crops, cropping and herbicide records for the past four seasons for that field, and a wi-fi enabled laptop or tablet computer. Experts will be coaching attendees through designing a custom cover crop blend.
Refreshments will be provided but not lunch – it is recommended that attendees eat prior to and not during the workshop.
This event is sponsored by SFA and the West Central Minnesota Dairy Initiative.
