Integrate Livestock into Your Veggie Crops

This question-and-answer session is a follow-up to a webinar NCAT hosted about integrated crop-livestock systems. Such systems may provide sustainable alternatives to terminate cover crops, reduce fertilizer, and improve the water cycle. Featured in this session are Montana specialty crop farmer Leon Stangl, Montana State University (MSU) research associate Devon Ragen, and MSU graduate student Trestin Benson. Leon shares his story of success in integrating livestock on his farm, and Devon and Trestin discuss their ground-breaking research concerning integrating sheep on dryland cropping systems and vegetable specialty crops.
