RFD TV interview | Fishers & Farmers combines sustainable farming & stream management
Maintaining water quality is a top concern across the ag industry.A nearly 14 inch brook trout is a trophy in most waters, but coming from a small stream in Minnesota farm country, it is even more noteworthy. This creek is showing water quality improvements in part because farmers upstream have made changes to farming practices. Some of those changes have been supported by a program called Fishers and Farmers. SEE THE FULL LINDNER FARM NETWORK VIDEO AT RFD TV.
