How to Thrive in Today’s Ag Economy: Transition to Organic Farming

Many farmers are considering the merits of transitioning part or all of their land to organic production. And with good reason.

When corn prices dropped this past fall and organic corn feed prices surged, we heard from many concerned conventional farmers looking to make the leap to organics. The demand for organic products appears to be on the rise. Is this the driving force behind the transition?

Sounds like a wholesale change in farming practices and a huge leap of faith. In some ways that is true; in other ways not so much.

Until five years ago, Wisconsin-based grain farmer Mark Doudlah was a full-fledged conventional no-tiller on over 1400 acres. Today, he is nearly all organic with some no-till organic acres. Why is he making the transition to being 100% organic in just a few years?

At our seminar “How to Thrive in Today’s Ag Economy – 10 Practical, Profitable Solutions” from 8:30 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. Thursday, January 29 at the Chateau Hotel and Conference Center in Bloomington, Illinois, Doudlah will share with us why he made the decision he made, the how-to’s of the transition, and his plan for ensuring the family farm will build healthier soils.

Could this also be a key to grow higher yielding, higher quality crops while becoming more profitable now and into the future?
