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.
