Group to host year's first Conservation Conversation

Brussels crop farmer Michael Vandenhouten has a good problem to sort through when he hosts Peninsula Pride Farms’ first Conservation Conversation in just under two weeks. Vandenhouten planted oats and tillage radish in his field near the corner of County Highway C and Plainview Road as a way to protect the soil from the winter weather and loosen it up as well with its roots. The cover crops grew almost too well thanks to good weather in the fall and now there is a lot of dead material on the field ahead of soybean planting. With some options not possible, Vandenhouten says the Conservation Conversations provide a great sounding board among other farmers.

The Peninsula Pride Farms Conservation Conversation starts at 5 p.m. at the corner of County Highway C and Plainview Road on April 27th. The series is held on a monthly basis at different farms across Kewaunee and southern Door counties.
