Habitat Pays Conservation Workshops
February 1, 2017 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
In response to a suppressed agricultural market, Pheasants Forever and Iowa based AgSolver are teaming up to promote the use of best management practices and conservation programs on less productive farm acres to combat income losses and improve producers’ bottom lines while providing high quality wildlife habitat.
Pheasants Forever is a non-profit wildlife organization that focuses on the conservation of pheasants and other wildlife through habitat improvements, public awareness, and education. AgSolver focuses on improving producer profitability through strategic planning on a sub-acre level utilizing their unique software program Profit Zone Manager. Profit Zone Manager allows the producer to utilize their data to make decisions focused on return on investment through a process called Precision Business Planning. This process provides the tools necessary to fully evaluate each management decision made in a growing season to achieve maximum profitability.
Through this unique relationship, Pheasants Forever and AgSolver are joining up to bring producers options for building and maintaining sustainability through sound agronomic decisions. Attend one of the following workshops to learn more.
January 31 – Brookings Convention Center, 10 a.m. – 12 p.m.
February 1 – Watertown Convention Center, 10 a.m. – 12 p.m.
February 2 – Aberdeen, Dakota Event Center, 10 a.m. – 12 p.m.
Pheasant Forever Habitat Biologists will be in attendance at the workshops to answer questions concerning what conservation programs and practices could be used to increase profitability.
Please RSVP by January 24th by contacting Karen Weisbeck at 605.692.6006
A free dinner will be served after the workshops.
