Opportunities for Conservation in Organic Livestock Systems

August 4, 2015 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Understanding everything you need to know about organic is no easy task. Oregon Tilth and the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) are here to help with our 2015 Webinar Series. Join us on the first Tuesday of every month for our one hour webinar sessions so you can gain a better understanding on the rapidly changing industry.

Join this webinar to learn about the wide range of opportunities for NRCS support in organically managed livestock operations.

Chad and Steve will discuss opportunities for conservation in organic livestock systems from both the NRCS and producer perspectives.  They will present common organic management practices and National Organic Program (NOP) regulations relevant to livestock including pasture and outdoor access, feed and pasture management.  The presentation will highlight NRCS practices that can fit well in organic systems such as rotational grazing, fencing and pasture management.  Steve’s farm will be used as a case study.

Speakers:  Steve Normanton, Organic Livestock Producer, New Hampshire; Chad Cochrane, District Conservationist, New Hampshire NRCS
