The Montana Conservationist, February 3
February 3, 2016
What do weed blasting, prairie dogs, Silicon Valley, and Laurie Zeller all have in common?
They’re all in this week’s edition of The Montana Conservationist, of course!
Highlights this week:
- What do you get when you give a bunch of programmers 100 years of USDA data and a cash prize? Some pretty great apps for farmers.
- There are a lot of ways to get rid of weeds, but if we had our choice between pulling, spraying, or blasting them, the latter certainly sounds like the most fun!
- Madison CD has a new reason to drink (in a good way): a grant from New Belgium Brewing to support the Madison Stream Team.
- According to a South Dakota study, prairie dogs do more than just engineer traps for your cattle: their presence affects the plant community as well.
