Organic Livestock is about much more than not using antibiotics and hormones. Organic Livestock is a lifestyle - for the animals that is! Therefore, their welfare is of utmost importance. Herd health and practicalities of animal welfare in organic livestock managementwill be presented at Eco Farm Day. See www.ecofarmday.ca.

Forage in my rotation as a CASH CROP?! Do you think land in forage is land that is unprofitable? Think again! Guy Forand will present at Eco Farm Day about all the steps to raise 10 tonnes/hectare of high quality, high value forage. Including forage in your rotation benefits the soil, reduces pest and disease pressure, and generates farm profits. For  more info visit http://www.ecofarmday.ca.

One of the key speakers is Jean Martin Fortier, author of "Le jardinier-Maraicher", now translated into English as "The Market Gardener". He and his wife operate Les Jardins de la Grelinette and reported are grossing six figure revenues on only 1 1/2 acres using bio-intensive methods. There is an enormous amount of interest in Jean Martin's methods and successes so COG OSO is delighted to be able to provide an opportunity for farmers to learn from his experiences.
