Meet our new project coordinator: Mike McKee

My name is Mike McKee and I am the new Project Coordinator for the Waukon office. I will be working on the RCPP and CIG projects. I grew up on a small farm just north of Waukon. While in high school I helped many local farmers with milking and various jobs.  After high school, I went to Iowa State University where I majored in Agricultural Studies and worked for the school livestock farms. From my experiences working with many different producers and educators across the state, I learned many ways of doing things. After Iowa State, I worked for a large grazing operation north of Rushford, MN.  This is where I began to really get interested in conservation and how our actions make a difference.  Since then, I have been able to move back closer to home and get my own place where I can put these practices to use. I look forward to being able to work with you and learn from you as we continue to keep soil health a focus.
