Wisconsin CRP Landowners Meetings Prior to Signup Hosted by PF
Madison — Pheasants Forever is hosting informational meetings in Wisconsin for landowners in advance of the USDA Farm Service Agency’s Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) general sign-up that runs May 20th through June 14. Led by PF Farm Bill Wildlife Biologists, landowners can learn how to increase their farm or ranch income while creating wildlife habitat in the process.
Programs like CRP provide stability for producers on lower-yielding, tougher-to-farm acres, while simultaneously serving as America’s top habitat tool for pheasants and quail,” said Dave Nomsen, Pheasants Forever’s Vice President of Government Affairs.
At these CRP meetings, PF wildlife biologists will discuss how the program works, and provide landowners with expertise on increasing the chances of their acreage qualifying for the program.
A meeting in Portage took palce May 7. The remaining three meetings will take place in: Baraboo, Baldwin and Ellsworth. The Baraboo meeting will be May 14 from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Sauk County Extension Office-USDA Service Center. The Baldwin meeting will be May 15 at 6 p.m. at the St. Croix County USDA Service Center. The Ellsworth meeting will be May 15 at 1:30 p.m. at the Pierce County Courthouse.
