Spring Virtual Learning Series

This virtual series, February 15 – March 22, is designed to encourage profitable farming by building resiliency, diversifying farming operations, reducing inputs, and increasing farmer’s return on investment.

Series Highlights

You will learn about best-management practices like integrated pest management, managed grazing, cover crops, and no-till farming—all tools farmers can use to take advantage of what nature has to offer and increase self-sufficiency on the farm. You’ll also explore the specific barriers Central Wisconsin farmers are experiencing when adopting best management practices through discussion with fellow farmers who have implemented these practices.
