Essentials of Organic and Biodynamic Dairy Farming

Primary tabs

Featuring Steffen Schneider and Altfrid Krusenbaum

Two veteran dairy farmers — an organic farmer with 150 cows in Wisconsin, and a biodynamic farmer with 60 cows in New York — will cover key aspects dairying out of their respective 30+ years of practical experience. Grounded in examples from each of our farms, we will share insights on seasonal dairying, developing the whole farm organism, integrating biodynamic practices, fertility management, grazing management, biodynamic feeding principles (based on Steiner’s indications in lecture eight of the Agriculture Course), and supporting and maintaining animal health. We will also discuss ways to inspire and train the next generation of dairy farmers, including apprenticeship and share milking programs.
