Iowa Learning Farms and partners will host a “Cover Crops for Forage and Grazing” field day at the farm of Randy Seinknecht in Gladbrook, Iowa, on June 5. The event is free of charge and open to the public.
Iowa Learning Farms, as part of the Iowa Cover Crops Working Group, will host a field day and four cover crop workshops across Iowa in March and April to support the growing popularity of cover crops in Iowa.
To help farmers in their decision-making, Iowa Learning Farms has launched a new tool to help calculate and compare the costs of using cover crops, including seed, application and chemical termination. It is available as an Excel file on the ILF website.
