University of California, Davis, Iowa State University, University of Kentucky and the National Center for Appropriate Technology will be launching a series of webinars under the Beginning Farmer and Rancher Development Program on topics related to integrated poultry-crop production. Our first webinar is taking place on June 1 at 2:30-4:00pm CT.  

These webinars (and other extension events and materials to come in the next few years) are intended for beginning and aspiring farmers and will cover a range of topics from pastured poultry husbandry, to crop rotation and marketing.  On June 1, we will present two topics covering an introduction to integrated poultry and crop production, and biosecurity best practices for pastured poultry, followed by a farmer feedback/input session. Registration is free but required.
