'Dirt Rich' Series Wraps Up Today in Goodhue
Minnesota Ag Connection - 10/29/2020

The Sustainable Farming Association's ongoing Dirt Rich series is wrapping up for the season in Goodhue with a fencing workshop featuring expert knowledge and farmer-relevant information. The workshop will also focus on the fifth principle of soil health -- livestock integration.

SFA Senior Technical Advisor Kent Solberg will lead "Fence Options for Grazing Cover Crops and Corn Residue" on Oct. 29 from 9 a.m. to noon. Jared Luhman, SFA Soil Health lead, will join in the instruction as the farmer host at his family's operation, Dry Creek Red Angus, in Goodhue.

"It's a great opportunity to get hands-on, in-field fencing experience with pointers from other farmers," said Luhman.

Registration is free for current SFA members and $40/nonmembers. Individual SFA membership is typically $40, making it a great time to join the network. This in-person event will be limited to 10 participants each to follow appropriate social distancing guidelines and to ensure plenty of time for hands-on instruction. Pre-registration is required.

The workshop is sponsored by the Driftless Chapter of SFA.

For more information, email SFA recommends bringing masks to all events. Dirt Rich podcasts are also available.

SFA is a chapter-based, statewide non-profit organization that supports the development and enhancement of sustainable farming systems through innovation, demonstration, education, and farmer-to-farmer networking.
