Steve Berger talks to ILF field day attendees about his no-till with cover crop operation.

Iowa Learning Farms farmer partner Steve Berger was in Phoenix last week to receive recognition from the American Soybean Association. He was named the National Conservation Legacy Award winner. He was one of three regional awardees who qualified for the national recognition.

Berger is a southeast Iowa farmer who is using cover crops along with his no-till corn-soybean operation. You can read the article about the ASA award recipients here.


 

Also, make plans to attend an ILF field day at Steve’s farm on March 25. He and his father Dennis manage the 2,000 acre farm which includes a large hog operation. The field day is from 5:30-7:00 p.m. It is free and open to the public. Visit the ILF website for field day details.

    A truly deserving honor! This is the very first time I’ve ever agreed the over-all winner was the best choice!
