Over 300 Wisconsin farmers enrolled 94,425 acres, in the Conservation Stewardship Program during the 2013 sign-up, pushing the state total over the 800,000 acre mark.       

Calvin Sebranek, of Richland County, enrolled the 800,000th acre into the Conservation Stewardship Program in Wisconsin.   

To show their support for conservation and the Conservation Stewardship Program, the Wisconsin Dept. of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection and the Michael Fields Ag Institute joined with the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service in recognizing this milestone, and honoring Mr. Sebranek for his stewardship of the land at an event in Madison on Dec. 10.        

The Sebranek farm is a 400 acre cash grain/beef operation in Richland County.
