Growing up in Wrenshall gave me the opportunity to learn a lot about agriculture through friends like the Laveau family.  Dairy, crops, livestock of all kinds and I loved having “chores”.  I’m sure they thought I was nuts!  If you are a farmer, agriculture producer or involved in local agriculture business you may be interested in a presentation on agricultural adaptation for climate change in the northland.   It’s free of charge and will give you valuable info to help in the success of your livelihood.

Agriculture changes rapidly, this will help you stay on top of the game.  The program is part of the series, “Northern Safari of Agriculture Specialists”, and is sponsored by UW-Extension.  Again, the session is free of charge and there are a couple of locations available in northwest Wisconsin to attend:

Maple, Northwestern High School, January 22, 7:00 pm (715-395-1515)

Spooner, Agriculture Research Station, January 23, 10:00 am (715-635-3506)

Dick Wolkowski, Extension Soil Scientist, Emeritus Department of Soil Science, University of Wisconsin will lead the discussion and present the preliminary results of a recent study from the Climate and Corn-based Cropping Systems Coordinated Agricultural Project.

According to Jane Anklam, UW -Extension Agriculture Educator for Douglas County. “Grass-based systems and livestock production of beef and small dairy herds are most common in the northern watersheds.” During recent droughts, producers have begun to explore marketing of hay and forage and are considering changes in their rotations to include small grains and soybeans.

Remember, it’s free and anyone interested is invited to learn best management practices for profitability and soil conservation.
