Grazing Cover Crops
Cover crops have value as livestock feed – but how much value? On-farm research shows that cover crops can offset the cost of winter feed and put money back into farmer’s pockets. Meghan Filbert, livestock program manager at Practical Farmers of Iowa (PFI), will share best management practices to maximize the economic value of cover crops and introduce a decision-making tool developed by PFI and Iowa State University to help analyze the forage value of cover crops. 

About the presenter: Meghan is PFI's Livestock Program Manager. Her work focuses on grazing systems; specifically on the integration of ruminant livestock into cropping systems. Meghan raises a flock of hair sheep on a vegetable farm for soil fertility, vegetation management and meat production.
