Landowner turns to Belgian horses for prairie restoration
ECHO -- Kurt Arner was working on a horse-powered dairy farm near Viroqua, Wis., liked what he saw, and traded in his BMW for his own horses.
"It was a good trade," said Arner of his 1978 swap.

His stable of seven Belgian and Belgian-cross horses provide the power on his small farm outside of Montevideo. "I raise my own power," said Arner of his sustainable farming practices.
