To start the day, we'll be stopping at Jennie-O Turkey to hear how they manage ever-changing trends and regulations, including animal care and water use. Next, the bus will head to Four Mile Creek Dairy to learn how this family dairy farm enriches their land while mitigating soil erosion. While here, we will enjoy lunch and engage in further discussion about ongoing soil experiments. The last stop of the day will be at Viresco. Learn how Viresco takes waste and transforms it into renewable electricity and natural gas. The bus will return to the Barron County Extension office by 4:00 pm.
