Water management is a critical aspect of sustainable agriculture, and it concerns not only those working the land but also non-operator landowners (NOLOs). We are excited to share that some of our esteemed partners will be hosting a Water Workshop event that holds great value for NOLOs. Join us as we highlight the significance of this workshop, which covers four essential topics: livestock water quality, water infrastructure, NRCS water specifications & recommendations, and portable water & storage.

Ensuring clean and safe water sources for livestock is crucial for their health and well-being. This workshop segment will delve into the importance of maintaining high water quality standards. Attendees will gain insights into water quality testing, the impact of contaminants on livestock, and strategies to ensure the health of animals on their land.


Water Infrastructure:

Efficient water management systems rely on well-designed and maintained infrastructure. Our partners will provide valuable insights into setting up and managing water infrastructure for agricultural and farming operations. Discover innovations in irrigation systems, water storage solutions, and distribution networks that can enhance the value and productivity of your property.
