Body: 

This project was developed at the 6th Annual Stinner Summit.  The project title, support and objectives are:  

 

Non-GMO Feed to Farmer ($3,150)
• Testing and evaluating models of alternative livestock diets and increasing public awareness of GMO contamination.
• Problem: How to provide consumers milk and meat from livestock who do not consume GMO feed given that livestock producers depend on corn, which is extremely vulnerable to GMO contamination.
• Idea: Explore alternative livestock diets using crops not threatened by GMO contamination: barley, sorghum, triticale.
• Ask: Funds to purchase alternative grain seed for cooperating farmers.
• Deliverables: Evaluation of producer profit, animal welfare, and contract efficacy. Educational outreach to inform, distribute model and provide technical assistance for adopters.
