Added June 7, 2011.Planning has begun for NODPA's 12th Annual Field Days that will be held at the Vermont Agricultural Business Education Center in Brattleboro, Vermont. In a year of grain shortages, high feed prices and dramatic weather patterns, a terrific committee of New England-based organic dairy farmers, educators, and experts came together in February to identify the meeting's theme: 'A nutrient and energy dense agenda to help farmers be more self-reliant by growing more of their own feed in healthy, rich soil'.
Cheyenne Christianson, an organic, no-grain, grass-based dairy producer from Wisconsin and this month's Feature Farmer (pg. 1) has accepted NODPA's invitation to be the Field Days Keynote speaker. We are lining up speakers to talk about innovative grazing strategies, the latest research and information on soil health, and producing great pastures and energy rich forages, to name a few.
In addition to a strong educational agenda, there will be a farm tour on Thursday morning; our annual social hour, banquet, featuring local, organic food, NODPA's Annual Meeting on Thursday evening and our producer-only meeting on Friday morning. You will be able to visit the diverse trade show throughout the meeting, and will have many opportunities to catch up with old friends and meet new ones. More information on the agenda will follow in the July NODPA News and online at:
For now, SAVE THE DATE!
