Multi-Species Cover Cropping, Integrated Grazing, and Soil Health in Row Crop Production

October 4 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm EDT

For nearly 20 years, John Beiler and his family have managed their 200 acres of hay, corn, and dairy cattle production using animal power and keen observation. In the past decade, they have steadily increased their use of 7-15 species in their cover crop mixes, intentional grazing of their fields in a 3-year rotation, and a focus on healthy and carbon-rich soils across their certified organic farm.  Join us to walk the Beilers’ “carpeted fields,” learn their cover crop mixes and interplanting successes, and hear from their collaborator Chad Parmley of MicroSoil Enhancers.
