Glen Rabenberg: Decoding the Connection Between Soil and Animal Nutrition Video (Download)
Much like human health can be tied closely to the foods we eat, animal health can also be linked to the soils used to produce animal food. Diseases found in animals are often the result of nutritional deficiencies from poor grains and forage that the animals were consuming. In this session, Glen Rabenberg brings his deep knowledge of animal science and applies it to the soil. He will explain how many of the same required nutritional ratios shared by humans, animals, and plants are reflected in the soil and show how to identify the relationship between specific soil characteristics and animal health.
Glen Rabenberg is the founder and owner of Soil Works LLC. Born and raised in Bancroft, South Dakota, he was awarded a Bachelor of Science in Animal Science, General Agriculture and Agriculture Economics from South Dakota State University in 1985. He still maintains his third generation farm in Bancroft, South Dakota and travels the world solving the world’s soil problems with a little bit of simplicity and the “rite” tools.
