Yahara Pride Farms hosted its first farm tour at Endres Berryridge Farms this June. Yahara Pride Farms Chairman and farm owner Jeff Endres led a tour of the facilities and the surrounding farmland. The tour revolved around the phosphorus “closed loop approach” which involves managing the phosphorus in a cycle from the cow, to the field and back to the animal as feed.
During the farmland tour, management practices such as buffer strips, sediment containment structures, grass waterways, and cropping practices were visited and discussed. The importance of nutrient management plans and new yield tracking technology devices were also explained.
