The fourth annual UW Discovery Farms Conference will be held Dec. 15 at the Glacier Canyon Conference Center in the Wisconsin Dells. The event offers feasible farm management strategies that benefit both the farm and water quality.
The conference will provide farmers with practical water quality information and implementable management solutions that are farmer-tested and environment approved.
The 2015 conference titled, "Farmer-tested, environment approved: Develop a winning cropping strategy," will feature two farmer panels and talks related to solving water quality challenges and addressing areas vulnerable to losses. Farmer panelists will share their experiences with manure incorporation equipment and assessing nitrogen use efficiency.
Experts from Minnesota, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin will offer insight into regulations, technology, and resources available for farmers. There will be ample opportunity to engage with experts and farmer panelists.
Registration is $40 for members of sponsoring organizations, $50 for non-members, and includes a noon meal.
