SWCD Awards 2016 Conservation Farmer of the Year
Each year, the Daviess County SWCD gives special recognition to a farmer or family farm in the county who demonstrates outstanding work in managing and improving their soil and water resources by making farm stewardship one of their primary goals. This award, sponsored by Farm Bureau, is announced at the District's Annual Meeting. Due to prior plans, this year's recipient was unable to attend and just received his award recently. It is with sincere respect and appreciation that we recognize Jeremy Jerger as the Daviess County SWCD 2016 Conservation Farmer of the Year. Jeremy's commitment to conservation is evident in that he not only plants cover crops using no-till methods, but also grows his own high-quality cereal rye cover crop seed. Thank you Jeremy!
