The Pope and Stearns SWCDs worked together to put together a Virtual Manure Management Field Day which was held on January 7th, 2021. The event had over 100 people registered.
During the virtual event, there were live interviews from Greg Vold, co-owner of Dorrich Dairy, Tim Woeste, co-owner of Upper Midwest Pumping, LLC, and Kevin Wolter, Business Development Manager, Bazooka Farmstar. There were research updates from University of Minnesota Extension staff members Melissa Wilson on manure management, Jodi DeJong-Hughes on tillage, and Anna Cates on soil health. There was also drone footage featuring the application of manure taking place on Dorrich Dairy.
A special thank you to Minnesota Department of Agriculture for sponsoring the event through the Minnesota Agriculture Water Quality Certification Program funding via the Clean Water Fund. Thank you Dorrich Dairy, Stearns SWCD, University of Minnesota Extension, Upper Midwest Pumping/Woeste Custom Harvesting, and Bazooka Farmstar.
