On this edition of the HAT Soil Health Podcast, HAT’s Eric Pfeiffer is joined by Decatur County farmer Gordon Smiley and Kristin Whittington, owner/operator of Landmark Enterprises. They tackle the topic of using manures as part of a nutrient management and soil health strategy.
Gordon and his brother, Jeff, farm around 1200 acres of corn, soybeans, barley and operate a farrow-to-finish hog operation in Decatur County. They have been 100% no-till and have been using cover crops since 2011.
Kristin Whittington owns and operates Landmark Enterprises, a full-service consulting firm for livestock producers, including Smiley Farms. She has also served as Director in the Office of Ag Relations with the Indiana Department of Environmental Management.
The HAT Soil Health Podcast is presented by the Indiana Conservation Cropping System Initiative and produced by Hoosier Ag Today.
