UNH Organic Dairy Research Farm: Lee, NH

One of the best ways to make farming sustainable (as a business and environmentally) is to reduce feed costs by improving forage quality and feed efficiency and producing high-quality, nutrient-dense products for humans’ consumption. At the UNH Organic Dairy Farm many of these forward thinking techniques are being implemented and/or studied with the hope of preventing issues instead of treating them. Hear from UNH extension faculty as they discuss (and showcase) calf care to prevent disease, forage quality to improve nutrition, and research being done to reduce methane emissions. Information will be applicable to all livestock management.
