Mission Statement

The mission of the Dodge County Alliance for Healthy Soil – Healthy Water is to build a community dedicated to soil and water health

Dodge County
Healthy Soil – Healthy Water

The 5th Annual Cover Crop Showcase was held at the Hoekstra Farm, Fox Lake, WI on Oct. 6. Over 30 individuals were in attendance, representing the farming community and lake property owners. A social hour at Cabby’s Grill took place following the showcase.

An area agronomist explains how the root structure of a cover crop is the key to holding soil in place, even during a major rainfall event.
The showcase had a perfect day to explore the engineering that the Hoekstra Farm has put in place to avoid soil run off.
