Local elected officials and the general public have an ideal opportunity to hear from and speak with a panel of dairy producers involved in on-farm research affecting waters in their communities, at the Feb. 25 Agriculture Community Engagement educational seminar in Stevens Point, Wis.
 
Attendees will hear the latest research from University of Wisconsin Discovery Farm Program and also from dairy producers who participated in the multi-year studies. Hear about what they learned, changes they made in their operations and how water quality and land use go hand-in-hand.
 
 “These educational seminars are a valuable opportunity to have an open dialogue on dairy issues that impact, or are impacted by, local governments,” says Rick Stadelman, Wisconsin Towns Association Executive Director.
 
In addition to water quality and environmental issues, the event will also include information and discussion on road issues. Attendees will learn about research that is being done in the Midwest to help our communities manage the changing needs of agriculture and the challenges with road use and repair.
 
This one-day event has been developed for every local elected official — town and county government leaders — dairy producer and persons who recognize the importance of being involved in issues that impact their communities and livelihoods.
 
Cost to attend the event is $40 and includes lunch and seminar materials. Registration begins at 8:45 a.m. The meeting begins at 9:15 a.m., with wrap-up at 3:30 p.m.
