Pasture for Organic Ruminant Livestock: Understanding and Implementing the National Organic Program (NOP) Pasture Rule
Nonprofit organic certifier CCOF has announced the launch of its new Pasture Compliance and Feed Audit inspection program (PCFA) that will help ensure compliance with the National Organic Standards pasture rule for ruminant animals. Through the new program, CCOF will perform between one and three additional annual, scheduled, pasture rule-focused inspections at operations whose complexity, sophistication, and/or climate place them at increased risk to compliance. The inspections can take place during the grazing season to observe pasturing systems or after the season to review records.
