Did you know that wetlands and buffers are considered the most cost-effective strategy for nutrient reduction in the Mississippi River Basin, and that there are federal incentives for farmers?

Water quality conservation practices help farmers create economically-sustainable operations. We are working with state agencies to implement practical and effective strageties that will keep nutrients on the field to maximize yields and protect our surface waters. Riparian buffers, field borders, and shallow water management are implemented along with comprehensive nutrient management at the Little River Animal and Environmental Unit in Blount County. Visit our WEB MAP  to learn about conservation practices that minimize the dairy operation's impacts on water quality and protect soil health.
