Going Green: Conservation Farming Going Green

Description

A 200 cow dairy farm in southern Onondaga County takes a conservation approach in their operation. They use rotational grazing, moving the cows over constructed laneways from paddock to paddock. They constructed a roof over the barnyard area to keep stormwater runoff from carrying off manure. They also constructed a filtering system to collect waste water and clean it before it returns to the aquifer underneath their property.
