Even with extra help around the farm right now, the one lending the biggest hand to farmers in Door and Kewaunee Counties is that of Mother Nature. Many operations were able to celebrate National Agriculture Week by frost spreading on winter wheat and alfalfa fields. That is because the ground was able to handle the equipment. Rio Creek Feed Mill agronomist Adam Barta says the controlled melting of snow and ice in recent weeks made that possible.
Operations like Rio Creek Feed Mill have kept busy as an essential business for agriculture during the Safer at Home order and Barta says they are taking the proper precautions to keep their customers and employees safe.
