Wildlife Management Plan

The Bower's Family noted that there is significant wildlife damage to crops within 50' of all woodlands and fence rows. If a portion of the farm is to be converted to small grains, hay or specialty crops, implementing a wildlife plan in 2013 would be an advantage for all parties.

Farmers National Lease Agreement 2013

Send a copy of the 2013 lease to the Farmland Subcommittee. During the conversation with the current producer fertilizer has been applied for 2013. Key questions include - What acreage is included? If the N acreage is part of the contract, can this be adjusted and the hay / grazing land be made available for sub-lease for livestock production. What improvements / maintenance items could be addressed? Can soil sampling be done in conjunction or independent of the current operations? If the committee makes a recommendation, who currently is responsible / accountable for taking action?
