Began working with first Iowa MMP’s in 1990 with the new confined swine facilities, both earthen basins and formed manure storage structures. I completed first CNMP in Iowa during 2000. I have since completed over 500 MMP’s, NMP’s, CNMP’s, and Organic Transition Plans, while building in precision conservation management strategies with farmers of all sizes. I have worked livestock and crop production enterprises to include cattle feedlots, cow/calf, dairy’s, farrow to finish swine, ewe/lamb, turkeys, broilers, corn, soybeans, double-crop systems, irrigation and dryland, vegetable and fruit, grass-fed beef, and high-tunnel vegetable farms. I am certified by NRCS in 10 states of the Midwest, US.
