This video series, “Cotton & Covers,” follows the soil health journey of three coastal plain cotton producers as they share their stories and experiences to improve the health and productivity of their farms. Allowing livestock to graze cover crops is often considered the fifth principle of soil health. While livestock might consume a lot of forage, most of the nutrient content passes through and is deposited back on to the field. In this episode, Zeb Winslow of Scotland Neck, North Carolina, Sonny Price of Dillon, South Carolina, and Burton Heatwole of Millen, Georgia, discuss the impact that properly managed grazing of cover crops can have on soil health.
