The UMass Extension Nutrient Management: Livestock and Crops Project conducts applied research and provides educational opportunities and technical assistance to dairy farmers, livestock producers and horse owners to increase their knowledge of environmental issues and their ability to reduce the threat of pathogens and nutrient loss from barns, stables, fields and pastures. A major focus of applied research has been on growing cover crops as an efficient way to improve soil health. Other projects conducted included small grain production and biofuel crop production.
