The Downtown Madison Kiwanis Club's Agriculture, Conservation and Environment (ACE) Committee presents this year's award to Yahara Pride Farms. Yahara Pride Farms is a network of over 70 farms in the Yahara Watershed that strives to improve water quality while balancing farm profitability. They sponsor the annual Ag Innovation Field Day, an event which is open to farmers, agribusinesses and the general public from across the state. They are also innovators in research and education. In partnership with UW-Extension, Yahara Pride Farms created a Cover Crop Test Plot in the fall of 2013 meant to identify the following effects of using cover crops after silage harvest and manure application, as well as after silage: future yields, nutrient holding capacity of soil, profitability and runoff reduction. Yahara Pride Farms is also active in informing and instruction its members to the benefits of manure composting, among other educational projects.
