2011 Farm Tour

August 17, 2011 at 8:30am

Soil and Water Conservation District to Host Farm Tour August 17th

The Will-South Cook SWCD will host a tour of the Burton Barr farm located in Wilton Township, Will County, on Wednesday, August 17th.  Starting at 8:30 a.m., participants will have an opportunity to view the actual construction site of a parallel tile out-let terrace system, demonstrating how terraces are built and field tile is installed to outlet water from a terrace storage area.

Other practices that will be reviewed are strip-till corn and no-till soybeans, stream bank erosion control and a wooded riparian stream buffer. Tillage equipment will also be on display and demonstrated on wheat ground. 

Other highlights of the tour will include a visit to the farm pond for a discussion on pond construction and stocking rates, and a stop within a beautiful mature oak savannah that you won’t want to miss.  A soil profile evaluation will also be demonstrated through the use of a soil pit.

Join us along with a group of knowledgeable speakers for a day of exploration and idea sharing.  Lunch tickets are available for $5.  Call (815)462-3106 ext.3 to register by August 15th    

An agenda and map is available  below.  You may also request a copy by mail, email or fax by calling (815)462-3106 ext. 103.
