Show Me the Money: Impacts of Cover Crops


Workshop audio recording from the 2016 MOSES Organic Farming Conference.

Saturday 1a

Cover crops can bring great environmental and economic benefits to your farm. Learn how to improve soil health while requiring fewer off-farm inputs and increasing productivity and financial impact even in times of extreme weather. We will talk about using various cover crops and rotations to help you enhance the living soil while making more money on your farm.

Gabe Brown is a soil health pioneer. He and his family own and operate a 5,000-acre farm and ranch near Bismarck, N.D. where they holistically integrate grass-finished beef and lamb and no-till cropping systems, eliminating the need for synthetic fertilizers, pesticides and fungicides. They also raise pastured laying hens, broilers and swine.
