Live from Redline Dairy Farm LLC in Belgium, Wisconsin, Matt Winker will discuss no-tilling for the past seven years in heavy red clay soils that make-up their farmland. Hear how Matt made the impossible, possible and about other conservation practices that have worked on their farm like interseeding and planting green using a roller-crimper. Matt and his wife Sarah milk 100 cows on their dairy operation. Andy Holschbach of the Ozaukee County Land and Water Management Department will interview Matt about being a member of the Ozaukee County Demonstration Farms Network and he will also share what the Milwaukee River Clean Farms Families Producer-Led Group is up to this summer.
This webinar is part of the Planting New Ideas, Growing Conservation producer-led webinar series that provides an opportunity to listen to an in-depth conversation about a specific conservation practice that a producer is implementing on their farm. Producers will talk about the details of implementing, challenges experienced, and tips on how to get started. Listeners and participants can ask questions throughout and after the topic discussion. Webinars are hosted on the second Tuesday of the month at noon. Topics will be announced.
This webinar will be recorded. Recordings of this and previous webinars are available at http://www.uwdiscoveryfarms.org/news-and-events/events/producer-led-webinar-series.
