In this eOrganic webinar, which took place on May 15, 2014, Dr. Jennifer MacAdam of Utah State University describes a multiple year research project, funded by the USDA Organic Research and Extension Initiative (OREI), that is partnering with established organic dairy producers in the Mountain West to determine the impact of supplementing and/or replacing grass pasture with birdsfoot trefoil (BFT) on milk production and milk quality. The study is looking at feed nutrients from organic BFT versus grass, the effects these forages had on soil organic matter, omega-3 fatty acid concentrations in milk and cheese from BFT-fed cows, and the economic risks and benefits for organic dairies of converting grass pastures to BFT pastures.
