Tour of Central Wisconsin
March 7, 2013 by WLKM
Here’s a reminder that the St. Joseph County MSU Extension is inviting elected officials and area farmers to an overnight agriculture and water tour of Central Wisconsin.
Jon Zirkle, MSU Extension program director, said the tour offers stops at several locations to view vegetable, field crop and cranberry farms in an irrigated, sandy part of Wisconsin around Stevens Point.
In addition, participants will visit with University of Wisconsin faculty, researchers and extension educators about crop research and water-management practices.
Participants will leave Monday and return late the following night. Cost is $260 for a single room, or $240 for a shared room, and includes travel, hotel and food.
Zirkle may be reached at 467-5510.
