Description

FCCA will host a Soil Health Program presented by Jim Isermann on Sunday, August 16, to show how successful farmers are working to improve soil health and environmental outcomes, while maintaining profitability and reducing inputs.

About the Speaker:

Jim Isermann is a field manager for the Soil Health Partnership covering Northern Illinois & Wisconsin. He graduated from the University of Illinois in 2002 with a Bachelor’s degree in Crop Sciences, and returned home to work on the family farm with his father. He currently has an 85-head cow-calf operation. The farm includes 900 acres in Livingston and LaSalle Counties, Illinois, with 120 of those acres in permanent forage; the rest are in production using a corn-soybean-wheat rotation.

Jim has also worked as a seed dealer, specializing in forages and cover crops. He worked directly with area farmers, providing them advice on cover crops and aerial applications.

Venue will be at the Sunday’s Shelter located in Franklin Creek State Natural Area. Due to COVID-19 masks are required at the presentation when physical distance cannot be maintained.
