    05-25-2017
    5044 Wiest Rd, Spring Green, WI 53588, USA5044 Wiest Rd, Spring Green, WI 53588, USA

    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.
