Organic Dairy Farming presents the methods of practicing farmers who are Runited in their conviction that organic agriculture is the best alternative for farmers who want to ensure that future generations will still have the resources to feed themselves and that it also represents the best hope for the family farm. Based on extensive research and interviews with many farmers, this book provides a concise collection of topics for those interested in sustainable agriculture. Addressing definitions of organic, obstacles to converting from conventional agriculture, herd health issues, cropping systems, rotational grazing, marketing and certification and including excerpts from OGBA and OCIA standards, Organic Dairy Farming offers concrete advice and convincing reasons for considering organic alternatives.
