CROPP Cooperative is sponsoring an organic field day on crop production, ration balancing and animal health 9 a.m.-3:30 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 29, at 170 Saner Lane, Mifflin, Pa.

“The field day will be at the farm of a long-term crop and dairy farmer,” said Peter Miller, divisional pool manager for Organic Valley. Agronomy practices will also be discussed.

“It will be an exciting day to see 32 different organic seeds trialed out on the farm,” Miller said.

Organic Valley’s staff veterinarian, Hue Karreman, and ruminant nutritionist, Silvia Abel-Caines, will also be there along with local vendors and equipment dealers.

For more information, call Organic Valley’s farmer hotline at 888-809-9297.
