3rd annual meeting of the Farmers of the Sugar River at the Albany Lions Club in Albany. Sign in starts at 10. Program starts at 10:30. Adam Lasch, a Lake Geneva Farmer will explain what he does to improve his soil with cover crops, interplanting and no-till. After a hot lunch from the Albany Lions Club, we will give an update of the progress of the producer-led group (Farmers of the Sugar River) and then will hear from Aaron Augustian, a Kewaunee area Farmer talk about how he is able to use no-till and low disturbance manure injection on his farm. Finally we will listen to Frank Lessiter talk about his perspective on the history of no-till and share stories he’s encountered in his editing career of No-Till Farmer Magazine. Please RSVP to Tonya Gratz at 608-325-4195 ext 121 or email: Tonya.Gratz@wi.nacdnet.net by Feb 21. We will charge $10 at the door to help offset costs of the event.
