Event Details

 

Joseph and Amy Morel are landowners and cattle graziers who are cooperating with other local farmers to provide high-quality food for their community from the soil up.  Current projects include infrastructure construction, improving soil and forage quality, and productivity, on three farms - their home farm, the Hay Farm, and the Clark Farm.  Together with partners, they have designed and are implementing a multi-year soil-improvement and farm infrastructure construction project on multiple properties.  Immediate methods include soil, forage and weight-gain monitoring, grazing management, bale-grazing,  subsoil plowing (Keyline soil development), mineral and fertilizer applications (biological and organic mixes, dry-broadcast, foliar, and subsoil-injected) and seeding, both new and into subsoil rips.  Seeding strategies include experimentation with Cocktail Cover-Cropping, a rapidly spreading innovation in soil improvement from North Dakota.  Come walk and ponder with us as we look  at the outcomes of infrastructure construction, grazing management and soil improvement work begun at the opening of the 2012 growing season.
