Friday Session III
Did you know that organic pigs must be managed organically from the last third of gestation, and have access to fresh air, the outdoors and shelter to be in compliance with National Organic Program regulation? Explore all the ins and outs of organic pork production and NOP regulation from an expert farmer to maximize livestock quality, production efficiency and profitability.
Steve Deibele and his wife have a small, certified organic farm that produces 100% grass-fed beef and pastured Berkshire hogs. They continually experiment to improve their operations, focusing on non-grain pig feeds, pasture housing, pig fencing, waterer stations, and pig grouping strategies.
