Cass County Soil Conservation District Achievement Winner
The North Dakota Soil Conservation Achievement Awards Program has been recognizing individuals who have made outstanding efforts to conserve valuable natural resources on their land since 1948. It is a statewide program with each of the 56 Soil Conservation Districts participating and the only program of its kind in the nation. Each year the district selects an individual or family who has demonstrated his/their ability to apply conservation practices to the land they own. Once selected, they receive a large 17″ X 24″ colored aerial photograph of their farm and a trip to the annual meeting where they are honored for their accomplishments.
We are pleased to announce that the Tyler Zimmerman Family, Leonard, have been awarded the 2018 Achievement Award. Tyler has been no-till farming for 4 years, along with extensive use of cover crops. He’s found success in seeding winter rye in the fall, following with green seeding of corn and soybeans into it the following spring. In addition, the Zimmerman family has used the EQIP program for a variety of enhancements, including a high tunnel system for garden crops. Tyler and his family are dedicated to the land and strive to apply conservation practices to every aspect of their operation. Congratulations to the Tyler Zimmerman Family for being named our 2018 Achievement Winner! They will be recognized at the 2018 North Dakota Conservation District’s Convention in Bismarck.
