In collaboration with Iowa State and with funding from the USDA Organic Research and Extension Initiative, Rodale Institute has been studying the most effective ways to integrate livestock and crops using regenerative organic methods. Dr. Andrew Smith, Chief Scientist at Rodale Institute, will present the results of the study, which looks specifically at grazing cattle on small grains followed by organic no-till corn or soybeans. Dr. Smith will also address common barriers farmers face when trying to integrate livestock with crops, and how to overcome those challenges.
