“Match Made In Heaven” Survey Asks Farmers About Livestock + Crops

A regional project “Match Made In Heaven: Livestock + Crops” is surveying farmers in six states to learn about a growing movement to reintegrate crop and livestock systems in the cornbelt. Farmers in Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Minnesota, Missouri and Wisconsin are invited to fill out a 15-minute online survey on the opportunities and barriers related to these integrated systems. Amy Fenn, the project’s coordinator, says, “The survey will be used to identify strategies for capturing the environmental, economic, and social benefits of integrated systems and share this information with partners across the region.” “Match Made In Heaven: Livestock + Crops” is a collaboration of more than 50 groups, funded through an NCR-SARE grant developed by Green Lands Blue Waters at the University of Minnesota.
