Farm conservation practices in Lancaster County, Pa.

Dairy cows on Esh Farm in Lancaster County, Pa., graze near a new fence designed to keep them out of Big Beaver Creek on June 4, 2018. By keeping livestock out of streams, fencing protects water quality while also improving the health of the animals. The restoration project on the Plain Sect farm, which also included forested stream buffers, in-stream structures for trout habitat and a livestock crossing, won a 2018 Governor’s Award for Environmental Excellence.
