In 2020, Ducks Unlimited extended a 5-year partnership with Millborn Seeds, Inc. to accelerate regenerative agriculture programs by working with producers and agri-business leaders. Millborn Seeds is a respected leader in cover crops, livestock forage and native grass seeds based in Brookings, S.D.

"We are dedicated to leading a land use movement, promoting conservation practices to increase wildlife habitat and wetland preservation," said Matt Fenske, president and CEO of Millborn Seeds. "We're excited to extend our partnership with DU and look forward to continued growth and collaboration for years to come."

DU's biologists and agronomists work closely with Millborn's professional team, providing technical and financial assistance to private landowners in the Dakotas and Montana interested in soil health, livestock production and wildlife conservation.

"We share a common vision to promote sustainable and profitable agriculture, while conserving critical wildlife habitat," said Eric Lindstrom, DU managing director of development in South Dakota. "As Diamond Legacy Sponsors and visionary conservation leaders, we're grateful for Millborn's generous support, expertise and valued partnership."
