The California State Grange, Label GMOs and Moms Across America are proud to present an extensive speaker tour featuring Howard Vlieger. Howard is a 3rd generation family farmer, and he is the primary coordinator and co-author of the only livestock feeding study in which GMO corn and soy and non-GMO corn and soy were fed to pigs for their lifetime as a meat animal. This scientific study was published in the Journal of Organic Systems in June of 2013. Howard is an internationally recognized speaker and educator on the subject of GMO crops and biological crop production. His experience with crop nutrition advisory dates back to 1992 and his research and testing of GMO crops dates back to 1994/1996. Howard has worked with crop and livestock producers all across the US and in Canada. You won’t want to miss this opportunity to learn firsthand from a real farmer and researcher, the truth about the challenges associated with GMO crops as well as the effects they are having on the soil, plants, animals and people.
