Equipping farmers to build resilient farms and communities.
The Midwest Covers & Grains Conference brings together Midwestern farmers, supply chain buyers and researchers to promote successful farming with extended rotations and cover crops. Network with those who buy and sell small grains and cover crops and attend sessions for both beginning and experienced cover crop practitioners.
John and Halee Wepking own and operate Meadowlark Farm and Mill in Ridgeway, Wisconsin, where they grow and mill a range of grains, including buckwheat, corn, wheat and rye. In an effort to maintain ground cover throughout the year and fix nitrogen in the soil, they frost-seed red clover into their small grain crop in early spring. Tune in to our March shared learning call to hear about Halee and John’s farming operation and learn how they can seed red clover and tine weed their small grains in one equipment pass.
