Winter Sustainability Clinic Jan. 19 in Ipswich

Farm Forum

With commodity prices taking a dip, producers are looking for unique strategies to help get the most out of their available resources, but still maintain long-term sustainability. Please join us for a clinic hosted by the Edmunds County Conservation District and Ipswich USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS).

The Jan. 19 event will be held at the Ipswich 4-H Building starting at 1 p.m. Registration starts at 12:30 p.m. and light refreshments will be provided.

Featured speaker is Jay Fuhrer—the North Dakota NRCS soil health specialist. He will focus on the carbon cycle, building our soils from the ground up, and returning livestock to the landscape. Jay grew up on a small grain and livestock farm near the North Dakota/South Dakota border north of Herreid and now shares his soil health passion through his experiences in cover crops and livestock integration.

Contact the Ipswich NRCS/Conservation District office at (605) 426-6951, Ext. 3 to RSVP or for more information. Admission is free. Persons needing special accommodations should contact the office prior to the day of the event.
