Field Day Talks Regenerative Farming

Regenerative farming and planting green are two of the cutting-edge topics that will be discussed at a field day on Aug. 17 hosted by Peninsula Pride Farms and the Door-Kewaunee Demonstration Farms Network.

Attendees will explore these topics through presentations by:

  • Rick Clark, a fifth-generation farmer from Indiana, will share his systematic approach to regenerative farming and its ability to be viable and sustainable for generations.
  • Jamie Patton, senior outreach specialist for the Nutrient and Pest Management Program at UW-Extension, will discuss key soil health properties and the impact of conservation practices on things like soil water dynamics, nutrient cycling, and crop productivity during an evaluation in a soil pit.
  • Barry Bubolz of the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Natural Resources Conservation Service will use a rainfall simulator on different soil management systems and discuss how the principles of soil health can affect the area soil and water quality. 

The field day is 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. at Deer Run Dairy, N1225 Sleepy Hollow Road, Kewaunee, Wis.
