The Blac-X Farm is a crop and beef cattle farm located in Rock County. The farm includes a cow-calf herd with active feedlots while also producing corn, soybean, alfalfa and small grains on land that are not devoted to pasture. Blac-X Farm is interested in learning how manure management, fertilizer applications and tillage practices are affecting nutrient and sediment movement on their cropped fields.
The Discovery Farms Minnesota site at the Blac-X Farm is designed to provide information to better understand how farm management practices can impact sediment and nutrient movement through surface runoff in this region.
