Federal funds help Skagit County farmers mitigate manure

September 6, 2019by ncdea

WASHINGTON, Skagit CD – Federal money is helping Skagit County dairy farmers better manage manure while lessening the environmental impacts of the farms.

At Wesen Organic Dairy in Bow, Dean Wesen said the farm has plans to install a concrete walkway or “cow sidewalk” in the farm’s pasture with federal conservation dollars specifically for farmers.

The Skagit Conservation District works with farmers to help them manage natural resources on their properties. Manager Bill Blake said there is interest in using EQIP funds for irrigation efficiency, such as the installation of sprinklers to water crops.

Blake said the district relies on a combination of state and federal money to assist farmers.
