Kevin Wagner raises beef cattle and grows corn, soybeans, alfalfa, oats and wheat on his family farm near Cuba City, Wisconsin. As the farm transitioned out of the dairy business, Kevin’s goal was to diversify their operation – a goal he continually strives for in his crops and livestock. Kevin has been fine-tuning his rotations to maintain high yields while reducing inputs. He has also added cover crops and integrated livestock.

Now, with a more diverse crop rotation and other pieces of on-farm diversity falling into place, Kevin is ready to share what he has learned. Kevin will discuss his use of small grains and alfalfa in his rotations, how his rotations support his livestock operation – which includes raising cows from start to finish – and what he has learned about planting soybeans green into cover crops.


Lunch will follow the field day.
