Central Wisconsin Farm Profitability Expo

Posted 1/19/2022 by swucherpfennig@co.wood.wi.us

The Central Wisconsin Farm Profitability Expo Is Back!


This year’s in-person expo is designed to encourage profitable farming by building resiliency, diversifying farming operations, reducing inputs, and increasing farmer’s return on investment. You will about learn about best-management practices including regenerative management, managed grazing, cover crops, and no-till farming—all tools farmers can use to take advantage of what nature has to offer and increase self-sufficiency on the farm.

You’ll explore the specific barriers Central Wisconsin farmers are experiencing when adopting best management practices through discussion with fellow farmers who have implemented them. As a bonus to our speaker line-up, you will hear from the next generation of farmers, agricultural students, and their take on the future of farming and land stewardship.

Join us Tuesday, February 15 from 9:30AM to 3:30PM at the Mid-State Campus in Wisconsin Rapids. Engage with fellow farmers and youth in agriculture for a day of thought-provoking conversation.
