Casey, a dairy farmer from Nova Scotia, answered : "We do a crop rotation so we grow alfalfa or grass for three five years and we then grow corn on that same field for three years. And it will go back to grasses again. We cover crop our new seeded ground with wheat just so in the spring, if we get a heavy rain, we will not lose soil to erosion. And we are starting to work with fall cover crop so we don’t get wind and winter erosion as well. We also have 100 acres of pasture that has been native grass for years. We just mow and fertilize it. It’s just native grass, we don’t do any cultivation with it, and it works very well. "
