Remember that award I told you about a few weeks back? It was the Leopold Conservation Award, which recognizes farmers that are making an effort to incorporate conservation into their farms. The best part is, they do it voluntarily, no fees or regulations required.
I just wanted to update that the winner has been announced.
The Wisconsin Farm Bureau has awarded the 2012 prize to Jim and Val Hebbe.
“Jim and Val Hebbe’s commitment to no-till and other conservation efforts that benefit soil and water is exemplary” said Dr. Brent Haglund, Sand County Foundation President. “Their on-the-farm practices and off-the-farm leadership make them shining examples of Wisconsin’s agricultural community.”
