Opportunities for Conservation in Organic Livestock Systems

This webinar was presented in partnership with the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS).

This session discusses opportunities for conservation in organic livestock systems from both the NRCS and producer perspectives. The webinar presents common organic management practices and National Organic Program (NOP) regulations relevant to livestock, including pasture and outdoor access, feed management, and pasture management. In addition, the presenters highlight NRCS practices that can fit well in organic systems, such as rotational grazing, fencing, and pasture management. Steve Normanton’s farm is used as a case study.
