Amending Soils in the Organic Dairy Pasture, Dr. Cindy Daley : In organic dairy systems, the adage, "it all starts with the soil" means that high forage intake and optimal milk production rely on maintaining good soil fertility. Investing in your soils can actually provide returns that continue to pay "dividends" long after the deposit is made into the proverbial soil bank account. Making that initial investment was an important step in the organic evolution of the certified acreage at the University Farm at California State University, Chico. In this webinar Dr. Cindy Daley will describe a long - term soil remediation field trial designed at the University Farm to study the effects of a basic soil amendment program on forage quality and yield, with an emphasis on the economic return that would result from added milk production.
