Bones Part of Conservation Exchange

Former State Ag Secretary Walt Bones is joining several South Dakota couples participating in a conservation exchange with Louisiana.  As part of the first ever Barnyard to Backyard event they’ll be touring Louisiana farms and fishing operations and learning about the challenges they face, especially on the environmental front.

Bones is exited to compare notes with the Louisiana farm couples about conservation practices that are working in both parts of the country.

He says the exchange was organized through the Theodore Roosevelt Conservation Partnership and is a great way to show consumers how farmers are producing a safe and affordable food product with a lower carbon footprint.
