Governor Evers applauds Peninsula Pride's conservation efforts

It might have been too wet to plant, but it was dry enough for Governor Tony Evers to check out the fields at Deer Run Dairy in Kewaunee on Tuesday. Owned by Derek and Duane Ducat and Dale Bogart, Deer Run Dairy is part of the UW Discovery Farms network currently experimenting with no-till planting and cover cropping techniques. Deer Run Dairy also invested in a digester in the last decade to turn manure into electricity for the farm and bedding for its over 1700 cows. Governor Evers told the crowd that as much as Democrats and Republicans are trying to outdo each other right now, this is something they could work on together.

Bogart says it was important for the governor to see the efforts being made in Kewaunee County.

Peninsula Pride Farms President Don Niles asked the governor to continue to invest in producer watershed grants to help offset the costs associated with implementing conservation practices and give them time to allow their efforts to have a positive impact.
