DODGEVILLE - Landowners and farmers in Iowa, Lafayette, Grant, Green and Dane counties can now receive help to find a renter or pasture acres to graze from the new grazing broker, Robert Bauer, at Southwest Badger Resource Conservation and Development Council, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization working in the southwest Wisconsin region. The organization's mission is to implement natural resource conservation, managed growth and sustainable rural economic development in the area through education and implementation of best practices relating to agriculture, grasslands, forests and surface waters. According to Jim McCaulley, director of the Iowa County Land Conservation Department, the program is a phenomenal resource and very practical opportunity for landowners and farmers alike.
