Do you have a passion for livestock? Have you considered converting your flat prairie “row crop” land into pasture?
Livestock just might be the key to your farm’s profitability in 2015 and beyond.
Nearly anything “livestock” is very valuable today. Both meat and dairy markets are doing well and those animals leave behind really good fertilizer. We’re not the only ones who see the value in a diversified operation.
Jeremy House, co-owner and co-operator of Meadow Haven Farm near Sheffield, Illinois, has seen first-hand the value livestock can add to any operation. At our upcoming seminar he will be sharing with us his journey in raising free-range chicken, certified organic pastured pork, eggs, turkey, and certified organic grass-fed beef.
Along with his family and Meadow Haven Farm co-owners Allan and Jeanne Sexton, House is a strong advocate for diversified organic farming and strives to create a healthy environment for their antibiotic-free animals and chemical-free pastures. Prior to co-owning Meadow Haven Farm he worked on a dairy farm with his dad.
What do you think? Does a good crop rotation and manure make for a profitable farming system?
