Linking Cover Crops, Cattle and Neighbors
Thursday, Aug. 4 | 10 a.m. – Noon
Hosts: Justin & Ellen Rahn
R & H Seed Solutions | Facebook
Justin and Ellen Rahn invite you to learn how they are making the most of cover crops on their 1,200-acre farm. Seeding cover crops after corn, soybean and small-grain harvests lets the Rahns’ cattle herds graze cover crops in the spring, summer and fall. They also work with neighboring farmer, Doug Linker, to get their livestock on even more land.
The Rahns raise their own cereal rye for seed, and through their business, R & H Seed Solutions, they provide custom cover crop seed and application to other farmers in their area. Don’t miss this opportunity to advance your knowledge on how to maximize the benefits of cover crops.
