Multi-species cover cropping field day


Fri, Oct 25th, 2013
Posted in Rushford Agriculture

RUSHFORD, Minn. — A multi-species cover crop field day will take place on Wednesday, November 6, at the David and Sue Larson farm south of Rushford. This Land Stewardship Project (LSP) event will run from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. and is free and open to the public. For more information, call LSP’s David Rosmann at 507-523-3366, or visit www.landstewardshipproject.org. This event will be held rain or shine.

DIRECTIONS: From the Rushford post office on Highway 43, travel 11.4 miles south on Highway 43 to Choice, Minn., and turn left at County 13. Travel east for 1.5 miles as it winds north. Look for “LSP Field Day” signs for directions.

Featured speakers include Jill Sackett, a University of Minnesota Extension Educator in Agricultural Production Systems; Bonnie Haugen, a dairy farmer and grazer from Mabel, Minn.; and Donna Rasmussen, District Administrator with the Fillmore County Soil and Water Conservation District (SWCD).

The Larsons own and operate a hay and grain farm along with a beef cow/calf herd enterprise that runs along the South Fork of the Root River. They also have prevented planting multi-species cover crops, including radish and rye. Discussion will include how cover crops benefit soil health and water quality, along with management of cover crops over winter and in preparation for spring planting. The topic of grazing livestock on cover crops will be discussed as well.

“Farmers will learn how cover crops are cost-effective and allow for grazing in the winter and early spring,” said farmer Bonnie Haugen. “It’s very important to hold that soil and not lose it.”
