Systems Approach to Organic Farming with Rodrigo Cala

Rodrigo Cala and MOSES hosted a field day on August 18, 2021 at Cala Farm Origenes in Turtle Lake, WI. MOSES Organic Specialist Rodrigo Cala shared the systems approach he uses on his organic farm, focusing on sheep production with rotational grazing, a perennial system for raising chickens, and much more. Rodrigo realized in the last couple years that his vegetable production system wasn't working as well as he’d like, and he turned to livestock to build soil and strengthen his business. You can contact Rodrigo through the Organic Answer Line at 888-906-6737 x 717 or by visiting Watch this field day on the MOSES YouTube page! English: Hmong: Spanish: <a

Climate Change: Resilient Soils with Dr. Jessica Gutknecht and Dr. Lauren Snyder

Continuing our climate change series, this episode is a workshop from the 2020 MOSES Conference with Dr. Lauren Snyder and Dr. Jessica Gutknecht. According to the NOAA, "the Midwest set a record for the wettest year in history (1895-2019) for the second straight year" in 2019. The need to build healthy soils that can withstand weather extremes is clear. In this episode, Dr. Jessica Gutknecht and Dr. Lauren Snyder share research-based guidance on practices that can improve overall soil structure and water-holding capacity—characteristics critical to dealing with extreme precipitation events. And we'll also hear from farmers as they share their reflections after a small group discussion on the topic. Lauren Snyder is a science advisor at the Organic Farming Research Foundation and a freelance science contractor. She has a doctorate in ecology and evolutionary biology from Cornell University. <a href="
