What will you do with your CRP grassland now that the contract has expired (or will expire soon)? We invite you to a workshop that will present an option that retains both the income and conservation benefits that you’ve enjoyed through the CRP program.
Your land is located in an area of Wisconsin nationally recognized for its unique characteristics and natural value as a historic grassland landscape. This landscape has been maintained through the agricultural practices established over the years, including CRP and grazing. Maintaining grass on your land has been part of this effort. We thank you for your participation in the CRP program and your contribution to reducing erosion, improving water quality and providing additional acres of habitat for wildlife.
While CRP had been a great choice for your land, we understand that the current economic and environmental times present landowners with a tough decision. The upcoming
“Grazing as a Land Use Option – An Introduction to Managed Grazing”
workshop provides information about renting your land for managed grazing as an alternative that offers many of the same benefits of CRP for the landowner, producer and the land. This workshop will discuss these benefits and how to initiate those practices through partnering with local graziers. The workshop is hosted by Southwest Badger RC&D, a natural resource conservation and community development organization serving southwest Wisconsin.
If you attended the workshop last year, we have added new information and breakout sessions. We hope you will consider attending again this year.
