This eOrganic webinar by Michael Lilburn of the Ohio State University OARDC took place on February 16, 2016.
This webinar will include updated findings from the NIFA OREI project "A whole farm approach incorporating pasture raised organic poultry and a novel cereal grain (Naked Oats) into an organic rotation"
In 2013, this research project group presented an eOrganic webinar which discussed how novel grains and pastured organic broiler chickens could be valuable additions to a multi-year organic rotation program on small-scale farms, as well as results from experiments in which pastured organic broilers (commercial, RedBros) have been fed diets containing 75% naked oats. It's not required, but if you'd like to watch a recording of the 2013 webinar, you can find it here, and be sure to register for the new webinar in advance to learn more about the project findings!
Michael Lilburn is a Professor and the Unit Supervisor of the Poultry Research Center in the Department of Animal Sciences at the Ohio State University.
Larry Phelan is a Professor in the Department of Entomology at the Ohio State University.
