Dawson Undies (5)

Joe is a third generation farmer raising hay, wheat, and cattle in Wallowa County. Joe has been experimenting with cover crops since 2013, using them as a tool to help yearling cattle put on weight, control weeds, and reduce fertilizer costs. The undies pictured above were in the ground for just 44 days.

 

The Soil Your Undies Challenge is on in Oregon. Find out how healthy your soil is with a pair of undies and a little time. The more your undies break down, the more active the microbes in your soil. Take of a photo of your results and share with orinfo@nrcs.udsa.gov to put your undies on the map!
