PDPW, Discovery Farms to Host More Water Quality Tours
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 06/14/2016

The Professional Dairy Producers of Wisconsin and the University of Wisconsin Discovery Farms program will hold more Water Quality Tours in the coming weeks to help bring together agricultural business leaders and consumers on the importance of fresh water to the dairy industry. The tours are open to the public and will focus on science, engineering, and management to achieve common goals.

Each of the one-day events will begin with a chartered bus departure at 9:00 a.m. Dates and locations are:

** June 14: Green Bay - BelGioioso Cheese, Inc., NEW Water Wastewater Treatment Plant and Brickstead Dairy.

** June 21: Oconomowoc - Koepke Farms, Oconomowoc Wastewater Treatment Plant and the Tyranena Brewing Company.

Along with touring the dairy businesses, attendees will also connect with key project collaborators, such as Land Conservation Departments and the National Resources Conservation Service, to learn more on the landscape-specific water quality challenges of each region.

Tour registration is $30 and includes lunch and transportation, but space is limited.
