Here’s a great video from Creekside Dairy, demonstrating the work ethic they are passing along to the next generation and also explaining the process they are undertaking to become certified orgranic. Thanks for taking the time to share what you do on your farm!


Riley enjoys feeding our heifers their organic alfalfa hay, and they enjoy digging into the sweet forage as well!Now that we are in the middle of our one year herd transition and the last of the three land transition years, our cows, heifers and calves are fed a diet consisting of 80% organic or homegrown transitional feed and 20% conventional feed for the first nine months (November to August), then completely organic for the last three months (August -November). These heifers are fed grass silage grown on farm and certified organic alfalfa hay from Alberta, along with a small ration of conventional grain. In August, the grain will be switched to certified organic. Up until now, our organic transition of the herd has been quite smooth. We had our third organic inspection a few weeks ago. The inspector was pleased with our operation and complimented us on our knowledge of the Canadian Organic Standards. We’re still waiting for our inspection report from our certifying body, but the inspector didn’t foresee any issues that needed to be corrected. This was good news for us! Inspections are a little stressful. We follow the Standards to the letter to the best of our knowledge, but it’s a relief to have that verified by an expert!#farm365 #organicdairyfarming #certifiedorganic #farmkid #familyfarm

Considering all that, it seems only natural that the Saskatchewan government…
