"The soil is, as a matter of fact, full of live organisms. It is essential to conceive of it as something pulsating with life, not as a dead or inert mass."
- Albert Howard, The Soil and Health, 1947

Sustainable agriculture doesn’t end at harvest. Efficient use of every crop component is an important part of sustainable production.

Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Maine’s top veterinarian retires, praises farmers
Bangor Daily News - 9/4/2012.
By Bonnie Washuk, Sun Journal – Augusta: Since he became Maine’s top veterinarian, Don Hoenig has worked to keep cows healthy, decided whether circus elephants could come to Maine and warned that too few dog owners ensure their dogs had rabies vaccines.
Somerset Grist Mill, Maine Grains open Saturday
Portland Press Herald - 9/4/2012.
By Avery Yale Kamila – After three years of preparation and hard work, the Somerset Grist Mill in Skowhegan hosts a grand opening celebration this Saturday, Sept. 8. The party starts at 10 a.m. with tours of the 5,000 square foot building. There will be a few remarks at 11 a.m. and the event will continue until 1 p.m., when the Skowhegan Farmers Market, which takes place in the parking lot, closes up shop.
Farm use of antibiotics defies scrutiny
The New York Times - 9/4/2012.
By Sabrina Tavernise – Eighty percent of the antibiotics sold in the United States goes to chicken, pigs, cows and other animals that people eat, yet producers of meat and poultry are not required to report how they use the drugs – which ones, on what types of animal, and in what quantities. This dearth of information makes it difficult to document the precise relationship between routine antibiotic use in animals and antibiotic-resistant infections in people, scientists say.
5 ways the Stanford study sells organics short
Mother Jones - 9/4/2012.
By Tom Philpott – Is organic food little more than a trumped-up marketing scheme, another way for affluent consumers to waste money? A just-released paper by Stanford researchers – and the reaction to it by the media – suggests as much. In reality, though, the study in some places makes a strong case for organic – though you'd barely know it from the language the authors use. And in places where it finds organic wanting, key information gets left out.
