WFU Sponsoring 'Money Matters on the Farm' Workshops
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 02/08/2019

The Wisconsin Farmers Union is partnering with Golden Sands RC&D for three beginning farmer workshops in Juneau, Green Lake and Waushara Counties in the coming weeks. The program, titled 'Money Matters on the Farm,' will bring in experts to speak about grazing and profitability, business management, EQIP and other cost-sharing opportunities.

"As a co-owner/operator of a grazing farm, it's been very beneficial to attend workshops where I can connect with other farmers and also receive information that I would not have learned on my own," said Denise Hilgart, farmer and sustainable agriculture coordinator at Golden Sands RC&D. "It's important to help other farmers succeed, and in our current farm economy, farmers have a heavy load to carry."

Programming will be the same at each location. Each meeting will run from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

The sessions will be held February 15 at Western Technical College in Madison; March 1 at Green Lake UW-Extension Office in Green Lake; and March 15 at the Waushara County Courthouse in Wautoma.

The cost for each workshop is $20 a person, which includes lunch. For more details and registration, visit www.goldensandsrcd.org or call 715-343-6215.
