Are you looking for a great field day to attend this summer? Then you’ve got to check out the free NEWBA (Nebraska Water Balance Alliance) Real Farmers – Real Experiences field day. It’s just around the corner on Aug. 3 and 4.
This field day will highlight the leading-edge irrigation management technologies on Roric Paulman’s working farm in Sutherland, Neb.
Unlike trade shows where participants only see samples of what technology can produce, vendors will set up technology stations and give demonstrations producing actual real-time data on one of Roric’s fields. You’ll learn how real farmers are saving water for future generations.
And if I haven’t already enticed you to attend, this may help! If you register by July 28, you’ll be guaranteed a free meal ticket to the Cream Can lunch! Never had a cream can lunch? Then you are missing out! And if you’re lucky, Roric may share the recipe!
