Dairy cattle and dairy farms have become part of the emerging world of precision technology.

Availability of locally grown strawberries is extremely limited in the Upper Midwest.  Researchers at the U of MN and WCROC have developed a method for growing day-neutral strawberries in a low tunnel system, allowing for the harvest of strawberries from July through October.

Nutrient applications should aim for optimum crop yields over higher soil test results.

The organic dairy herd at Morris is one of only two certified organic dairy farms located at a land-grant university and the work being completed promises to have a large impact on the growing organic dairy industry.
