Madison Kiwanis Club Honors Yahara Pride Farms
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 05/14/2018
Yahara Pride Farms was recently honored with the Conservation and Environment Award from the Kiwanis Club of Downtown Madison. Board members Jeff Endres and Scott Maier, both dairy farmers from Waunakee, accepted the award on behalf of YPF.
"The Yahara Watershed is one of the most populated and agriculturally productive watersheds in Wisconsin," Maier said. "That means there are lots of houses sitting on some of the best farm land in the state."
One of YPF's goals is to earn the trust and respect of farmers, private citizens and government by engaging them in projects and educational programs that demonstrate how the agricultural community is committed to doing its fair share in making improvements
in the watershed.
The Kiwanis Club of Downtown Madison is a service club with a membership of around 80 men and women. They chose to recognize Yahara Pride Farms for its unique efforts to manage and reduce nutrient transport from agricultural lands to the Yahara River
watershed through education, demonstrations and land management practices.
