On March 11, 1998, Seth Watkins’ farm was hit with a severe blizzard. He and his cattle made it through, but it was something he never wanted to experience again. So this time, instead of asking how to deal with the problems caused by the blizzard, he asked himself: Why am I working against Mother Nature and not with her?
In this episode, Seth will explain how from that moment on he went from a farm system focused on production to a system focused on stewardship, and how that has paid off for the environment and his bottom line.
In today’s No-Till Farmer podcast, brought to you by Montag Manufacturing, we welcome Seth Watkins to talk about how he’s using conservation to benefit his farm and his community.
