Webinar to Help Veterinarians, Farmers, and Livestock Professionals Understand Organic Livestock Standards
On Thursday, July 10 at 1 p.m., the Ohio Ecological Food and Farm Association (OEFFA) will offer an 90 minute webinar, "NOP Livestock Standards," introducing the National Organic Program (NOP) standards, with a special emphasis on livestock standards.

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.
