The Herbst Farm is a crop and contract finishing hog farm located in Dodge County. The farm produces corn and soybeans while manure from the hogs provides nutrients for the crops. This family farm is interested in learning how farm management practices affect sediment, nitrogen and phosphorus movement.
The Discovery Farms Minnesota site at the Herbst Farm is designed to provide information to better understand how farm management practices can impact sediment and nutrient movement through surface runoff and tile lines in this region.
