The Wisconsin Cover Crop Conference is geared toward helping Wisconsin farmers more successfully use cover crops in their own conservation cropping systems.
Topics will include dealing with manure, reducing tillage, termination of covers, and “doing it on the cheap” Many of the presenters will be Wisconsin grain and livestock farmers speaking from experience about what has worked and hasn’t worked in their Wisconsin conservation cropping systems.

Last year’s conference was a huge success with 400 attendees!
