What I've Learned from No-Tilling: No-Till and Cover Crops Deliver More From Field and Pasture

Putting all moisture to use growing something beneficial helps push semi-arid dryland production to the next level.

WESTERN SOUTH DAKOTA is dry. The last few years it’s been really, really dry. In the drought conditions we see all too often anymore, I’m very glad we no longer till the 750 acres we use to grow forage to help support our 600-head commercial cow/calf herd.

Integrating a Diverse Rotation, Cover Crops and Livestock Into Your No-Till System - Darin Williams - NNTC 2016 Presentation - MP3 Download

$19.95

Darin Williams wishes he had known about no-till and grazing cover crops when he decided to go into home building after college because he didn’t think he’d make it as a farmer in his community. But since he took up farming in 2010, Williams has been able to grow his no-till operation to 2,000 acres of non-GMO corn, soybeans, wheat, rye, triticale, winter barley and milo, and grazes his cattle herd on cover crops to maximize their investment. Williams also has a flock of sheep and recently added poultry. Considering organic matter to be king on his farm, the Waverly, Kan., no-tiller discusses the components that make up his no-till system, including why he tries to direct-market everything produced to consumers and how he marketed his grain for premiums in 2015.
