Our annual PFI field day at ROSMANN FAMILY FARMS is set for Thursday August 18, from 2 – 5 p.m. at our farm. Our address is 1222 Ironwood Road, Harlan.  From the intersection of Highway 59 and Highway 44 in Harlan, go 2 miles west on Highway 44, then turn north on Ironwood Road and go 2.25 miles.

The event will be held RAIN OR SHINE and is free and open to the public.

This field day will focus on pink-eye control in organic livestock production with presenter Annette O’Connor, DVM, Iowa State University.  This presentation is based on a Leopold Center for Sustainable Agriculture study. 

Another guest speaker is Todd Churchill, owner of Thousand Hills Cattle Company in Cannon Falls, Minnesota.  Thousand Hills Cattle Company supplies grass-fed beef for sale to restaurants, natural foods stores and three colleges in the Twin Cities area.

We will also share data from an aphid resistance soybean research trial that we’ve been conducting for the past three years.  Discussion will also take place on using multiple planting dates for soybeans and a ridge-till weed control study in soybeans.

And, following the organic meal that I (Maria) will cook, there will be a fence construction demonstration put on by Ron and Daniel.
