    Join Iowa County’s Farmer-Led Watershed Group for a Tour of 2 grazing farms followed by brats and seafood.

    The first tour, 9:30 a.m., at Butler Family Farm (Ann and David Zimrin), 5044 Wiest Rd, Spring Green WI.
    The second tour, 11:30 a.m., at Hillside Pastures Farm (Daniel and Linda Marquardt), 6511 Hillside School Rd, Spring Green WI.
    Lunch will follow tour at Hillside Pastures Farm.

    Come see and discuss grazing practices – grazing rotations, a demonstration of moving fence, no-till drilling for pasture improvement, goats for brush control, stream stabilization and crossings, overwintering fields in recovery, challenges with erosion and runoff, and a rainfall simulator showing impacts of land cover on erosion.
    Then enjoy brats, plus seafood caught by fishermen in the Gulf – whose challenges with nutrient build-up and biological die-off in the Gulf Dead Zone we seek to help through our conservation practices.

    There is no fee, but thank you for RSVP’ing here, or email Margaret Krome, Michael Fields Agricultural Institute, mkrome@michalfields.org, 608-238-1440
