Clean Water Action Council of Northeast Wisconsin, with support from the Wisconsin Coastal Management Program and NOAA, is hosting a one-day workshop Thursday (Dec. 6) designed to provide dairy and beef farmers with the information needed to consider managed grazing as a way to improve profits and reduce workloads, while protecting water resources.
