Serge Koenig has served for more than 25 years as a Conservation Technician for Sauk County in Wisconsin. He is passionate about his work--helping land owners think about how to best preserve the natural resources (especially water and soil!) that they steward. In recent years, Serge has turned to promoting grassland-based systems as a way to get to the root of the conversation problems that Sauk County faces. And, in our conversation, he shares about his approach, as well as the obstacles and opportunities that he's seen when helping farmers transition to grazing.
