Webinar: Holistic and Organic Livestock Management
Thursday | August 03, 2017 | 12:00 pm — Thursday | August 10, 2017 | 1:30 pm
Join the CCOF Foundation and Holistic Management International for an introductory webinar that explores the intersections between organic and holistic management systems for cattle operations.
Organic and Holistic Management are two approaches to sustainable livestock husbandry. This webinar will review the basic principles of both approaches for cattle ranchers. Then, explore how the two approaches can work together for cattle ranchers looking to cultivate economically and environmentally sustainable operations.
Organic and Holistic Management livestock practices can work hand in hand to assist cattle ranchers in building environmentally and economically sustainable businesses. Kelsey Maben, farm certification specialist at CCOF, will review the steps necessary for livestock operations to obtain organic certification through the USDA National Organic Program. Participants will also learn about the basics of the Holistic Management decision-making framework from Joe Morris of T.O. Cattle Company. During the final half the webinar, Morris will share his experiences combining both organic and Holistic Management practices on his ranch.
This introductory webinar is ideal for organic cattle ranchers looking to find out more about the basics of Holistic Management, Holistic Management practitioners curious to learn more about the organic certification, and cattle ranchers new to both approaches. Ample time will be reserved for questions from webinar participants.Visit Event Website >>
