Ronald Hansen Month's Conservation Farmer Ronald Hansen, who farms 440 acres of the Howard Hoenk land, was named conservation farmer of the month by Kossuth County Soil Conservation District Commissioners, according to Julius Baas, Chairman. "With all the rains that we are having," Ronnie says, "the contoured fields look like level ones as the water Is getting between the contour ridges." The Hansons started to contour 3 years ago and have 110 acres on the contour tills year. Mike, who is Ronnie and Phyllis oldest boy, says, he enjoys plowing on the contour and thinks it is very scenic when the crops start to come up. Ronnie explains that erosion was occur ing and he was losing a lot of valuable water, before he started to contour. He mentioned that he had some point rows, but has recently pur chased a corn combine, which lie feels will be the answer to this prol>- lem. He goes on to say, "Crops look the same on the sloping ground as they do on the level land. On the rolling ground there is no loss of hills of corn through erosion and contouring saves soil." Ronnie and Howard have a farm conservation plan on their farm developed with the assistance of Lyle R. Rledinger and Loren Bishop of the SCS. The livestock enterprise on the Hansen farm consists of 300 head of hogs, 35 feeder calves and 35 beef cows. Terraces are scheduled to be built on this farm as soon as the weather permits and an erosion control structure has been designed and is to be installed in the near future.
