PFI To Hold Dairy Event Near Paullina: Dairy Grazing, Silvopasture and Compost

Paullina, Iowa — The farming group “Practical Farmers of Iowa ” will be having a dairy feeding event soon near Paullina.

Practical Farmers of Iowa tells us Torray and Erin Wilson are part of the third generation on the Wilson farm. Each family member active in the farm is responsible for a different crop or livestock enterprise. Torray and Erin operate the grass-based dairy, selling milk to Organic Valley since 2016. They both have training in Holistic Management and continue to find those insights helpful in managing the complexity of the farm and family.

PFI says you can learn how they are doing things differently in corn and soybean country, from grazing their dairy herd and planting silvopasture to experimenting with Johnson Su compost. Torray Wilson says their goal is to have a farm that is flourishing and beautiful.

The event will be on Friday, June 7 from 10 a.m.-Noon at 4375 Pierce Avenue, near Paullina.
