A Soil Health Workshop will be hosted for its second year on Friday, Jan. 18.

The Workshop will be held at the Monroe City Knights of Columbus Hall from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Registration will start at 8 a.m. A lunch will be provided, and there is no cost to attend this meeting. The meeting will feature speakers with No-till, Cover Crop and livestock experience. Three knowledgeable speakers will talk about Building Soil Structure, Understanding C:N Ratios and Using Livestock to Enhance Cover Crop Benefits.

There will also be a Farm Bill update with highlights of the newly passed 2019 Farm Bill. The Workshop will again feature a farmer panel with producers that are utilizing covers in either a cropping system, livestock system or both. These producers will discuss their operations and how they have benefitted and learned from trying to increase Soil Health on their land.

There will be sponsors present again this year with products and information for attendees that may help them with their Soil Health questions or goals. Representatives hope you can make plans to attend this free informational event.
