About this Event

The Dodge County Farmers Healthy Soil - Healthy Water Group will be hosting a COVER CROP SHOWCASE Open House, Thursday, Oct. 22, between 4:30-6:00p, at the Matt Leinke farm, N8900 Sunny Point Road, Beaver Dam. The event will take place rain or shine.

This is an opportunity for area residents, particularly shoreline owners, to learn the conservation methods that are being performed by Dodge County farmers. Following the demonstration will be pulled pork sandwiches and beverages, hosted by Dodge County Farmers Healthy Soil – Healthy Water Group and the Beaver Dam Lake Improvement Association. Refreshments will take place following the Showcase and will be open air.

The Showcase will demonstrate how cover cropping improves soil water infiltration. Improved soil reduces surface water run-off and farmland erosion. Run-off is a concern for many lake residents. The challenges of run-off will also be discussed during the Showcase.
