Steve and Cathy Peterson and their two sons, Drew and Kent, farm near Salem and Avon, South Dakota. They run a cow-calf operation near their home north of Salem.
As active farmers and avid hunters, this multi-generational farm family is always thinking of ways to improve wildlife habitat to their land.
Key habitat initiatives:
- USDA Conservation Reserve Program
- FSA programs
- NRCS programs
- Tree planting programs
- Rotational grazing
- Cover crops
- Buffer strips along waterways
- Late-season mowing
