Organic Swine & Dairy Field Day

Mark your calendar for Thursday, June 22 for the Organic Swine, Dairy & Hybrid Rye Field Day hosted at the UMN's West Central Research & Outreach Center, 46352 MN- 329, Morris, MN.

This field day will highlight the results of the multi-disciplinary research project using organic hybrid rye as a feed ingredient in diets for organic pigs. All phases of pig and rye production, manure management, economics and carcass quality have been evaluated in this ongoing study. Topics will include substituting rye in a traditional corn-soy diet, feeding and grazing organic dairy cows, and pasture walks.

Registration begins at 10:30 a.m. with the program from 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Lunch is provided. Lunch will include pork loin from both the rye-fed and corn-fed pigs.

The event is free of charge, but RSVP is requested. Participants can register by calling WCROC at 320-589-1711, or email Yuzhi Li at
