Soil Health Principles
Healthy soil is fundamental. Our health, wealth, and future depends on the ecosystem beneath our feet. SFA's work promotes agricultural community and prosperity through soil health.
We provide consulting and technical assistance as well as educational and networking opportunities to farmers and landowners in the areas of grazing, dairy, cropping, silvopasture, and fruit and vegetable production.
The Latest from SFA
In the latest episode of SFA's podcast series Dirt Rich, our team member Angie Walter shares her experience using PaddockTrac, a grazing tool being developed by the University of Missouri.
The Walters use the device as they drive their pastures weekly, using both their eyes and the data to help make sound grazing management decisions.
How does it work? Listen to episodes 64: Grazing Tech - PaddockTrac anywhere you get your podcasts!
We're all coming out of hibernation, and there's plenty of opportunities to reconnect or get involved with your local chapter or networking group!
