Partner Profile: North Carolina Forage and Grassland Council
Forages and grasslands are an integral part of agriculture in North Carolina. Hay, grasses and other cover crops provide nutritious feed for livestock, help maintain healthy soils and play a vital role in water conservation. The North Carolina Forage and Grassland Council (NCFGC) joins grassland managers, livestock owners, agribusiness, public servants and interested citizens to support the effective use of North Carolina's grassland resources and support forage research. That’s why they became early supporters of the North Carolina Plant Science Initiative (N.C. PSI).
Partner Profile: North Carolina Cattlemen’s Association
Grazing cattle can contribute to the health of the soil ecosystem by self-harvesting forages while reinvigorating soil nutrients with natural fertilizer. The North Carolina Cattlemen's Association has invested in the N.C. PSI to increase awareness, research and education that can help farmers learn how to use forages and grazing cattle to improve their soil health
