    IOA Winter Webinar Series: Organic Grass Milk Dairy Farming with Joe Langmeier

    Please join Iowa Organic Association and organic farmer Joe Langmeier for the Organic Grass Milk Dairy Farming webinar. Langmeier’s farm is 100% organic dairy and produce farm. They have been organic for 20 years now. 

    Langmeiers have been 100% grass fed since 2005 and have milked once a day since 2012. They decided to pursue organic because they disliked the use of chemicals on their farm. Lagmeiers have had a lot of success focusing on excellent dry cow/calf raising and high-quality forages. 

    During this webinar, Joe Langmeier will discuss what he thinks it takes to be profitable farming this way. In addition, the Langmeiers are also chasing a dream of growing organic produce, nuts and fruit as well.

     

    There is no cost to attend the event, however, we do ask that you please RSVP below.

    IOA Winter Webinar Series: Tending to the Microbial Life of your Soil with Chris Trump

    Please join Iowa Organic Association and Chris Trump for the Tending to the Microbial Life of your Soil webinar. Chris is a world-renown educator in Korean Natural Farming (KNF) techniques speaks on the power and effectiveness of tending to the microbial life and diversity of the soil in your ag land. Chris is a life-long farmer that bridges the gap between scientists and farmers, giving farmers effective and efficient tools for decreasing disease and directly affecting their bottom-line through the use of indigenous micro-organisms.

    KNF is an all-natural farming experience that works for whatever the size of your farm or garden. You can exponentially increase the output of your farm at about half the price of traditional inputs.

    Chris Trump is the first person to use KNF techniques on a large-scale farm. He is the creator of the latest version of liquid IMO and he has perfected the KNF inputs and solutions so that they are incredibly effective. Chris wants to walk alongside you on this KNF journey. He will help your farm/garden be successful.
