NW Iowa Meetings Feature Environmental Stewardship for Ag


Crop and livestock producers are invited to a meeting featuring environmental stewardship and their role in protecting Iowa's resources. The meeting will be offered from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at four locations. Meetings will be March 17 in Spencer, March 24 in Sheldon, April 5 in Whittemore and April 6 in Carroll. 
The meetings will address four main issues facing agricultural producers - water quality, the Iowa Phosphorus Index and plans to manage phosphorus, air quality regulations and research, and assistance provided by state and local agencies. The keynote speaker is Chuck Corell, water quality bureau chief with the Iowa Department of Natural Resources (IDNR), who will discuss water quality issues in Iowa.

The meetings are cooperatively sponsored by Iowa State University (ISU) Extension, Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship, IDNR and the Natural Resources Conservation Service. Registration cost of $30/person is due two days in advance of the meeting you plan to attend. For a brochure or more information, contact your local ISU Extension Office or Beth Doran, ISU Extension beef field specialist (712) 472-2576 or go to http://extension.agron.iastate.edu/immag/info/environmtg05.pdf
