Manure Safety Discussion Session at MOSES Conference

Friday, February 26, 2016 - 11:00am to 11:45am

The Midwest Organic & Sustainable Education Service Organic Farming Conference takes place in the La Crosse Center Arena in La Crosse, Wisconsin. Attending the conference provides an opportunity to learn ways to improve your farm, discover new resources and tools, make connections and find support. 

The Organic Center and the Organic Trade Association will hold a Manure Safety Discussion Session in collaboration with the University of California, Davis. The session will be led by The Organic Center’s Science Advisory Board Member Dr. Riki Sorge, a professor at the University of Minnesota. This discussion group will address the challenges associated with manure and animal rotational grazing, and will be part of a national effort to address issues surrounding animal-based soil amendments and animal rotational grazing.  Listening sessions are being conducted regionally, with the results being collected in a white-paper that will help shape a long-term research plan addressing the most pressing needs of the organic community.  We encourage you to attend the session on Friday, February 26, from 11:00-11:45 a.m. to share your thoughts and knowledge about research needs for and current use of manure in organic farming.
