Conservation Tillage Association and Co Corn
The Colorado Conservation Tillage Association’s 2020 No Till To conference has the expressed goal of helping farmers be profitable during tough times.
Association President Michael Thompson recently wrote that it’s easy to focus on the negatives with government trade issues, weather, and pressure to market grains and livestock in times of razor thin margins. It has been pretty easy to be overwhelmed by the negatives, but as farmers and ranchers we have to find a positive spin to these challenges and rise to the occasion.
Colorado Corn Growers and the Colorado Corn Administrative Committee sponsor the conference’s Soil Health Partnership session.
Colorado Corn’s Kim Redding: “The Soil Health Partnership is a great program. It’s all farmer driven and managed in part by the National Corn Growers Association to help quantify what’s happening with soil and those soil management practices that implementing to make a difference.”
Rotational grazing, soil testing, and increasing soil biology are all on the agenda at the Burlington conference according to The Colorado Conservation Tillage Association.
