January 2021 Virtual Farm Tour - Opportunities with Silvopasture

On January 27th, the Iowa County Farmer-led Uplands Watershed group hosted their virtual farm tour, "Opportunities with Silvopasture: More than Just Animals in the Woods," in collaboration with the Michael Fields Agricultural Institute, Savanna Institute, the University of Wisconsin-Madison Division of Extension, and the Conservation Professional Training Program.

A special shout out to Kevin Erb, Director of the Conservation Professional Training Program for providing the technical support and information about soil health training programs available to farmers and agricultural professionals in and near 9 key element watersheds.
