As 2023 comes to a close, Loran Steinlage, No-Till Farmer’s 2023 Conservation Ag Operator Fellow, reflects on the previous cropping season and looks ahead to 2024 — at least as far ahead as someone with a flexible mindset will plan. Join Steinlage and his special guests for a conversation about lessons learned from drought, valuable technologies utilized on the farm in 2023, expectations for the year ahead and more. Bring your questions and comments, too! The floor will be open for discussion.
Email Michaela Paukner with any questions about the webinar, working with the No-Till Farmer marketing team to provide resources for your farmer-led group or anything else related to No-Till Farmer.

About the Speakers
Loran Steinlage, a 2020 No-Till Innovator award winner and No-Till Farmer’s 2023 Conservation Ag Operator Fellow, no-tills 750 acres of corn, soybeans, wheat, buckwheat, rye, barley and sunflowers in West Union, Iowa. Always thinking about how to move his operation forward, Steinlage has been experimenting with advanced farming systems like interseeding, relay cropping and 60-inch corn for nearly 2 decades.
Tom Barcellos farms 1,800 acres of primarily dairy feeds in Tipton, Calif. He started no-tilling 26 years ago, and today he no-tills small grains and strip-tills corn for silage to produce feed for 2,000 cows across 2 dairy operations.
Michaela Paukner is the managing editor of No-Till Farmer. Her background is in journalism, marketing and broadcast news. In this webinar, she’ll moderate questions from the audience for Steinlage and Barcellos.
