Buena Vista County Extension Ag Coffees Continue

During the winter months, Iowa State University Extension and Outreach works hard to bring local producers important information to help their operations. We put on many annual programs, and this year, Buena Vista excited to offer a new series focused on trending agricultural topics.

“Extension Ag Coffees” is a new series geared towards agricultural producers and rural community members. This series is hosted twice a month through April from 10:00-11:00 a.m. at the Buena Vista County Extension Office. There is no charge to attend, and coffee and donuts will be provided.

Presenters will cover an array of trending agricultural topics that affect our community and lead an active question and answer session.

The January 16 session will have Fred Hall, ISU Dairy Specialist, discussing the 2024 farm income predictions.

On January 30 , Russ Eukin, ISU Livestock Specialist, will talk about the swine trends and issues.

The February 13 session will cover composting hi-path AI by Dr. Kris Kohl, ISU Agricultural Engineer.

On February 27, Fred Hall, ISU Dairy Specialist returns, and will discuss dairy beef research and I-29 Moo University Dairy Beef Short Course.

The March 12 session will cover Ag Decision making topics with Gary Wright, ISU Farm Management Specialist.

The March 26 session will be on crop insects, weeds, and diseases by Gentry Sorenson, ISU Field Agronomist.

On April 2, Beth Doran, ISU Beef Specialist, will talk about beef trends going forward. With the uncertainty in the marketplace, this is a conversation about the beef industry you do not want to miss!

The final session on April 23 will focus on how to avoid fraud by Carol Ehlers, ISU Family Wellbeing Specialist.

Each session will have a presentation with time for discussion from the audience. We look forward to the participation from the community to learn more about what types of issues you are facing right now, and future programming you’d like to see in the area.
