Time & Location
About The Event
Check-in for the Winter Workshop is 8:30 to 9 am. The workshop runs from 9 am until 2 pm.
The workshop's key note speaker is Cody Nelson. Cody Nelson is the Founder of Soil RX Incorporated. Soil RX is a company focused on helping farmers to incorporate soil health principles on their own farms while also increasing profits and tracking the value of regenerative agriculture. He comes from the west central region of Minnesota where he has not only utilized cover crops and other soil health principles on his own farm but he has also helped several other farms began their quest for healthier soil. Cody has over 10 years of experience with the use of cover crops and reduced tillage practices. He and his wife (Mel) and three kids also own and operate Bar N Cattle Company where they practice regenerative agricultural practices on their row crop and cow/calf operation.
Nelson will be discussing the effects of soil health and how to get started. There are many benefits to increasing the Soil Health on local farms. We will go over how Soil Health practices will increase water infiltration, help to hold nutrients in place and cycle nutrients allowing farmers to utilize reduced fertilizer rates, and how increased soil health can aid in minimizing erosion, therefore not only helping to increase farm profits but also to help to provide clean water throughout the local lakes and streams.
