Webinar to Help Veterinarians, Farmers, and Livestock Professionals Understand Organic Livestock Standards

Submitted by Kerri Ebert

On Thursday, October 8, at 1 p.m., the Ohio Ecological Food and Farm Association (OEFFA) will offer a 90 minute webinar, "NOP Livestock Standards," introducing the National Organic Program's (NOP) livestock standards.

Gain a better understanding of the history and meaning of organic, the certification process, and the standards governing organic crop and livestock production. Come prepared to learn, having completed a brief, pre-course self-study assignment prior to the webinar. Be ready to engage in livestock discussion and examine real-world examples facing producers, veterinarians, and certifiers each day.

The session is being led by OEFFA Certification's Julia Barton and is geared toward veterinarians, Extension educators, farmers, and other animal health professionals who work with certified organic livestock.

There is no cost to attend the webinar, but pre-registration is required. To register, visit https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/8008936524444610306.
