Project Information


Development of a program to raise organically certified beef requires on-farm feed testing and mixing. Changing harvest practices to use a combine with a recleaner will eliminate the spread of weed seed and construction of a better corn crib, and a grind will allow on-farm feed development according to organic certification standards. This project will help provide for a livestock consultant and crop consultant to provide guidance and support with the transition to a more sustainable system with OCIA-approved supplements.
