The NortheastWisconsinTechnicalCollege will soon start offering classes in organic farming. The courses will start in January 2007.

At this point, three classes are planned that will address livestock feed, milk and produce in organic farming systems. Because such a change in mindset is required for organic production, NWTC believes the courses can help producers learn best management practices for organic production and eliminate some of the trial and error that their organic predecessors have been through.
