Inspirational ideas: Crop diversification - multiple benefits for dairy farm

His mixed pastures show promising results for the quality of his feed and the health of his animals. The variety of species also helps increase organic matter in the soil. Exchanging knowledge with other farmers has been valuable in getting the best results.
