Hosts: Tracy & Sue Skaar and Mic Skaar

Address: 18809 810th Ave | Hayward, MN 56043


Tracy Skaar grows corn, soybeans, oats and hay with his son, Mic, on a combined 850 acres in Hayward, Minnesota. Half of their beans are no-tilled with a cereal rye cover crop, and their oats are underseeded with a mix of red clover and non-dormant alfalfa. This year, Tracy is involved in a PFI Cooperators’ Program trial testing termination dates after planting soybeans into green rye cover crops.

Lunch will follow the field day.
