The Michael Fields Agricultural Institute works with the Iowa County Uplands Watershed Group, which was formed in the spring of 2016. The group is composed of a mixture of producers, whose practices affect the subwatershed feeding into the Wisconsin River, and eventually the Mississippi River.

This producer-led group is hosting its second virtual event in lieu of in-person field events and in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The focus of this group’s second virtual event is on silvopasture.

Silvopasture is an agroforestry system that combines trees and forages with livestock management. Join us while we discuss the fundamentals of silvopasture and hear from landowners and professionals on their experiences in implementing silvopasture as a land management practice.

In addition, learn how to use a soil health kit and about soil health training programs available to farmers and agricultural professionals in and near 9 key element watersheds through the UW-Madison Division of Extension Conservation Professional Training program.
