District Names Presleys 2014 Outstanding Conservation Farmer
Lynn Carey - CCSD Wednesday November 12, 2014

The Cumberland County Soil Conservation District (CCSCD) recently honored Johnny and Jonathan Presley as the 2014 Outstanding Conservation Farmer at its Annual Awards Dinner. Johnny and Jonathan Presley operate a beef cattle farm in the Linary Community of Cumberland County. They currently manage their beef cow/calf operation on approximately 800 acres of pasture and hayland. Their present operation consists of 35 registered Charolais cows. They also manage 150 commercial cows and 200 stockers. Some of the Best Management Practices (BMPs) that the Presleys incorporates in their farming operation are rotational grazing, cross fencing, a water distribution system and riparian livestock exclusion areas. Some of the cost-shared items they have installed are 3,000 feet of cross fence, 8,000 feet of exclusion fence, a well and pumping station, four (4) freeze proof water tanks, and 3,500 feet of pipeline. They effectively utilize the services and cost-share programs of the Cumberland County Soil Conservation District, the Tennessee Department of Agriculture, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service. The Presleys hosted the SCD Annual Conservation Field Day at their farm in September. During the field day, both Johnny and Jonathan discussed their cattle operation, including how they use embryo transfer to genetically improve the quality of their registered cattle. Thanks to the Presley family, the field day was a tremendous success. The Presleys demonstrate a strong soil conservation and land stewardship ethic in their farming operation and are making a very positive impact in their community and county.
