Contributed by Mary Bentley

This is the third of our lecture series, and is the first to explore alternatives to antibiotic use in farm animals.  Look for the cow posters! 

 

Don't foul your nest:
Local food systems as a remedy to pharmaceutical use in agriculture

Maryrose is President of the Northeast Organic Farming Association of New York, and Donn is the President of the Draft Animal Power Network. They both have experience working on conventional cow dairy farms. They have a deep commitment to sustainable farming, both as practitioners and educators.
