The Dubois County Soil and Water Conservation District held their annual meeting earlier this week and featured a key note address by Bruce Kettler.
Kettler is the director of the Indiana Department of Agriculture. We spoke with Kettler and he describes the importance of Dubois County to agriculture in Indiana.
Improving stewardship of land and water is the purpose of Soil and Water Conservation Districts and plays a large role in the Indiana Department of Agriculture. Kettler explains:
The Soil and Water Conservation District promotes to all citizens, both agricultural and non-agricultural, the vital benefits of protecting and preserving of all natural resources.
