The Iowa Learning Farms has three cover crop field days coming up in early April.  The field days will highlight the benefits of grazing cover crops, discuss spring management, and an evaluation of seeding techniques.  Plan to attend a field day listed below and hear from local farmers using cover crops in their operations, as well as ISU Extension and Outreach field specialists and staff from Practical Farmers of Iowa.
