SILT sponsors the Frog Hollow Farm Field Day this year, organized by Practical Farmers of Iowa.
Got goats – or thinking of adding some? Learn about raising Boer and Kiko meat goats in a rotational grazing system,
from kidding to marketing. The Hopkins will discuss their pasture management practices including fencing, watering
and pasture mixes. Staff from the local Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) field office will talk about the
Hopkins’ conservation plan and funding from the Environmental Quality Incentives Program (EQIP) that helped with
adding paddocks to their pasture.
