Shared Learning Calls

Shared Learning Calls are conference calls, where you dial into a conference line with others and listen as a farmer shares their practices for 15 to 20 minutes. We then open the floor for questions and discussion for the rest of the hour. All you need is a phone!

Join future shared learning calls and get resources on small grain production delivered straight to your inbox by signing up for our monthly small grains newsletter.

To participate in these events, you simply need to dial a call-in number and enter a passcode.

In the Corn Belt, markets for small grains are limited, but as cover crops gain momentum the demand for cover crop seed is on the rise.

Enter selling small grains as cover crop seed. Seed should meet purity standards, and therefore should be cleaned.

For Bill Frederick (left) of Jefferson, Iowa, seed cleaning for small grains is a crucial part of his business, Iowa Cover Crop.

On January 8 at 12:15 p.m. call in to hear from Bill as he shares his experience with cleaning seed: from purchasing a cleaner, to settings and maintenance to marketing.

To join dial (605) 313-5784 and enter passcode 239000# when prompted.
