Happy New Year's to all our supporters! It's been a momentous year, and we hope you are finding ways to relax, rejuvenate and reflect on a year that brought unexpected hardships, but also unforeseen silver linings. Here at Practical Farmers of Iowa, we are looking forward to the many ways we can all come together in the months ahead to help build resilient farms and communities.
Normally, this section houses our photo of the week, but since this is the final "Practical News" issue of 2020, we wanted to feature our favorite photo of the year! This photo is of Martha McFarland as she prepares to work on fencing in one of her bison pastures on a late-September day at Hawkeye Buffalo Ranch near Fredericksburg, Iowa.
Martha will be featured in our first documentary film – "Livestock on the Land"
– which debuts Jan. 21, 2021, at our virtual annual conference. Learn more about the event and sign up here
