Sept. 19, 2013 | 0 comments

Three speakers are scheduled for the 5th annual Partnering for Progress chautauqua and barn dance being held on Saturday, Sept. 20, at the Saxon Homestead farm, 15120 S. Union Road in southeast Manitowoc County.

Starting at 3 p.m., early arriving attendees can visit the buildings, check the paddocks, and sip on cider or coffee at the multi-family enterprise, which specializes in grazing-based dairy production.

The formal program begins at 5:30 p.m. with retired Wisconsin state conservationist Pat Leavenworth reviewing efforts to protect and improve water quality in the state.

Adding their own perspectives on the topic will be dairy grazier Joe Tomandl III of Medford in Taylor County and Bob Nagel, the general manager of the two Holsum Dairy operations in Calumet County.

A buffet meal prepared by chef Joe Schuh of Broken Plate Catering at St. Nazianz and the Culinary Institute at Lakeshore Technical College will be served at 6:30 p.m. A barn dance with music by the Buffalo Stomp band will begin at 7:30 p.m.

Raffles will be conducted for baskets of wine, beer, and cheese, summer sausage, rain barrels, a willow chair, and framed pictures. Numerous sponsors are supporting the event with the Livestock Improvement Cooperative being the lead sponsor this year.

Beneficiaries of the event will the Wisconsin School for Beginning Dairy and Livestock Farmers, the local Lakeshore Natural Resources Partnership, and the Wisconsin Gathering Waters Conservancy, which provides services for more than 50 land trust organizations.

Tickets are $50 per individual, $85 for a couple, and $20 for students. Reservations can be made through the www.wisconsinfarmland.org/barn dance website or by calling Jenn Hansmann at 920-627-1799.
