Partnering With a Neighboring Cattle Farmer to Graze Cover Crops

Partnering with your neighbors can be a win-win situation. John Burger will discuss his first five years of experience with cover crops and how he’s working with his neighbor, Craig Swaby, to graze those cover crops. They’ll discuss drilling cover crops, strip grazing, soil health test results, compaction, crop yield and how they work out the financials in this arrangement. Craig will show attendees his fencing and watering set-up.

The Farm:

John Burger and his uncle, Richard, raise row crops near Udell, Iowa, and have been experimenting with cover crops for five years. They have been working with their neighbor, Craig Swaby, to graze cover crops for four years.
