Partners form new demonstration farm

SOUTH DAKOTA, Beadle CD – Partners in a new regenerative agriculture demonstration farm being established on 310 acres south of Huron want to illustrate the benefits of soil health practices on cropland that landowners may not have tried, the organizations two leaders said Tuesday.

Ducks Unlimited and conservation districts were born out of the crisis of the 1930s Dust Bowl days, Putnam, a former congressman from Florida, said.
“It was a time when the landscape looked a lot different than it does today, he said.

“Regenerative agriculture brings conservation and agriculture together to benefit both a producer’s operation and wildlife,” Putnam said.

Beadle Conservation District will own the property and it will be managed by a steering committee with representatives from Ducks Unlimited, NRCS and Beadle Conservation District.
