Nutrient Management Training

Nearly $356,000 has been awarded to counties and technical colleges in Wisconsin to provide farmers with training and assistance in nutrient management planning, helping keep contaminated runoff from reaching the state's waterways and groundwater.
The awards are for training in 2013 and 2014.
Counties receiving money include La Crosse, $21,250 dollars, Trempealeau (with Western Technical College), $28,900 and Eau Claire, $3,200.

The training is done at the local level, by people who are familiar with the terrain and the challenges that farmers face in Wisconsin's widely varying landscapes
