Organic Dairy Forage Management - Corn Silage & Weed Control
Tue, Sep 12 from 10am - 2pm
The Miller Farm is a 5th generation family farm that converted to organic in 2009 and is milking 170 cows. They grow a variety of crops for forage from corn to alfalfa. This workshop will focus on organic forage production. Join farmer Peter Miller, grazing consultant Sarah Flack and UVM Agronomist Dr. Heather Darby as we discuss the installation of their irrigation system, their organic corn silage production, as well as other forages they grow, and how the Millers are using flame weeding tools for weed control. Lunch is provided, and will be prepared in NOFA-VT’s mobile wood-fired pizza oven.
