Conservation Rotations and Cover Crops Following Small Grains
Friday, July 15 | 10 a.m. – Noon
Hosts: Andy Linder & Don Linder

Address: 47605 180th St. | Easton, MN 56025
If you’re interested in small grains, reduced tillage and grazing cover crops, this field day is for you.
Andy Linder (pictured with his wife, Lindsay) farms with his father, Don Linder, near Easton, Minnesota, raising no-till soybeans, no-till and strip-till corn, oats, canning crops and hay. He also operates a cover crop seed business selling seed and doing high-clearance applications.
Committed cover-croppers, the Linders have planted 100% of their acres to cover crops every year since 2016. They have also drastically reduced tillage on all acres, and in 2019 started grazing cover crops following their small-grain harvest. These efforts led to the family receiving the Faribault County Soil and Water Conservation District’s Outstanding Conservationist award.
At this field day, you’ll learn from the Linders about managing diverse rotations, no-till corn, spring-seeded covers and the benefits of grazing for soil health. Andy will showcase his oat field planted next to a field of canning peas, and no-till corn planted into a spring cover crop. If you’re interested in small grains, reduced tillage, and grazing cover crops then this is a field day for you!
