Yahara Pride Farms representatives have presented about Yahara Pride Farms and innovative conservation practices in agriculture at multiple conferences.
This winter, Yahara Pride Farms Board Chair, Jeff Endres, presented an overview of Yahara Pride Farms at the UW Discovery Farms Conference in the Wisconsin Dells. The session highlighted why Yahara Pride Farms was established, the programs we offer, and how we have been successful in farmer engagement.
At the beginning of April, Yahara Pride Farms Director and board member Don Heilman traveled to the Watershed Coordinator Conference in North Dakota to expand our education efforts of the Yahara Pride Farms program to a regional audience.
Additionally, Yahara Pride Farms board member Bob Uphoff attended the Badger Swine Symposium at UW-River Falls. At this conference, Bob also promoted Yahara Pride Farms initiatives by discussing our current programs, engagement and watershed involvement.
