Join us on Friday, September 10 near Le Sueur for the Nutrient Management Strategies Field Day.

The events begins at 10am and goes until 12pm (noon), followed by a free lunch.


Registration is free. To register, email Emma Severns at or call your Extension office (Nicollet County 507-934-7828 or Sibley County 507-237-4100).
