Central Wisconsin Farm Profitability Expo

Posted 12/8/2020 by Land and Water Conservation

The Central Wisconsin Farm Profitability Expo is working to encourage profitable farming by building resiliency, diversifying farming operations, reducing inputs, and increasing farmers' return on investment.

About the Organizers

We are an event planning committee made up of farmers, watershed group representatives, agency staff, and agricultural and natural resource specialists.

The Farm Profitability Expo is a revival of the ‘Healthy Soil, Healthy Water’ events held in years past in Stevens Point. The planning committee came back together in the Winter of 2019 and added a few more partners to the table.

With 20 local partners contributing to this event, our goal is to find the best knowledge out there, bring it back home and make it applicable to farmers here in the central part of the state. We hope this ongoing event helps to address the specific barriers Central Wisconsin farmers are experiencing when it comes to adopting Best Management Practices.

2020 Virtual Conference

Originally the plan was to hold a large, single day event, but due to the ongoing health concern, the committee has decided to shift to an online webinar series format.

Join us this Winter starting December 2, 2020, for conversations on what it means to farm profitability amidst today's challenges. Engage in conversations with the farmers using the latest Best Management Practices and hear their first-hand experiences. Hear agricultural specialists share the tools and resources needed to break the cycle of conventional farming and transition to a truly resilient and profitable system.
