Equipping farmers to build resilient farms and communities.
Practical Farmers is in its seventh year offering cost-share and technical assistance for those who are seeding fall cover crops.
You can receive $10 per acre on up to 200 acres or 10% of your farmed acres (whichever is larger) and $5 per acre on everything above that. There are no requirements on the species or seeding method used.
Join JR Jenkins of Pleasant Prairie Stock Farm, to learn about rotationally grazing cattle and sheep on pasture and cover crops. JR solely grazes on leased land. He also breeds and trains livestock guardian dogs, direct-markets 100% grass-fed beef and lamb and owns a custom fence company. We’ll enjoy a potluck lunch with burgers from JR’s beef at his cousin’s wedding barn, where we’ll also discuss agritourism.
