Come see and discuss these farmers’ practices – agroforestry, alley-cropping, cover crops, no till corn, no-till soybeans, stream crossings, organic corn, rotational grazing of hogs, water management diversions, and more. And meet Bayou fishermen who will share their stories about why Wisconsin farmers’ conservation practices matter to them and their Louisiana families. Who knows better the impact that Wisconsin conservation farmers have on water quality than fishermen downriver, who receive and depend on that water for their livelihoods?
