Abstract:
Like many producers in Wisconsin, R & G Miller & Sons is already seeing an increase in intense precipitation events particularly in spring. This delays planting and prevents early season grazing due to possible damage/compaction from cow traffic on saturated pastures. Extended wet periods (e.g. 5 in of rain or more/week) and big deluge rains also lead to ponding in some areas of fields, which in turn leads to reduced productivity of pastures.
