Features from the Farm
The University of Minnesota West Central Research and Outreach Center (WCROC) in Morris established an organic dairy herd in 2008, and subsequently began transitioning selected fields from conventional crop production to organic crop production in effort to support the organic dairy herd. Approximately 300 acres are under organic management with the goal of producing 1) forages: alfalfa haylage, wheatlage, and corn silage, 2) corn and wheat feed grains, and 3) straw for livestock bedding.
