The 2014 Leopold Conservation Award winner, Jack Herricks, will address the farmers of the Tainter Creek Watershed Council at their Thursday, March 18 meeting, from 7-9 p.m.. Herricks operates a 600-cow dairy near Cashton, and was a participant in the UW-Discovery Farms’ Jersey Valley Watershed project to research links between edge-of-field runoff and water quality.
The Herricks have been practicing no-till farming since 1992, as well as other conservation practices such as cover crops, soil erosion control measures, runoff reduction measures, careful manure management, forestry management, and enhancement of wildlife habitat. Herricks will share his enthusiasm, experience, and data collected through his on-farm conservation agriculture practices.
The meeting will take place online, using the Zoom platform. Participants can also join via phone. To join via Zoom, go to:
