MMPA Cover Crops Project Field Day

June 15, 2021
10 - 11:30 a.m. ET

Zoom

The Michigan Milk Producers Association (MMPA) Cover Crop Project is a collaboration between MMPA, Unilever and Barry-Callebaut to demonstrate what dairy farmers are doing for soil health and carbon sequestration with cover crops.

MMPA is working with MSU Extension to present a Virtual Field Day that will feature six MMPA members in the Cover Crop Project to share their experience using cover crops and lessons learned. The field day will feature pre-recorded farm visits and interviews that include discussions on topics such as seed selection for forage and conventional cover crops, manure management, planting and harvesting methods, and the practical application of cover crops in a dairy crop rotation. A farmer and technical panel will be offered to answer questions from participants.

This program has been approved for one (1) Restricted Use Pesticide credit through the Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development (MDARD). Only Michigan residents who attend the entire live webinar are eligible to receive the RUP credit.

Registration for MMPA Cover Crops is open.

Registration closes at 11:59 p.m. on June 13, 2021.
