July has seen swaths of Minnesota move into increasingly intense drought conditions, per the U.S. Drought Monitor. With the 2021 drought in the rearview mirror, five SFA farm consultants from across Minnesota gathered for a roundtable drought discussion on our latest episode of Dirt Rich.
Listen in to hear how Angie Walter, Derek Schmitz, Doug Voss, and Tyler Carlson are approaching and planning ahead for drought in each of their unique grazing operations. While conditions have changed since this conversation was recorded in early June, their goals and decision-making strategies are evergreen.
