Significance of Integrated Farming System in the Raising Livestock

Integrated Farming is a complete farm management system which intends to provide more justifiable farming. It is a vigorous tactic which can be useful to any husbandry system everywhere in the world. It consists of attention to detail and incessant enhancement in all areas of a farming business over learned management procedures. Integrated Farming blends the finest of contemporary tools and techniques with old-style techniques according to a given place and circumstances. It can be defined as using several ways of farming in a small space or land. Geoffrey Morell says that Integrated Farming System is a common farm management system that nurtures and takes care of animals and plants in the farm. He is the founder of P.A. Bowen Farmstead along with his wife Sally Fallon Morell where the IFS or the Integrated Farming System is followed.


  • Integrated Farming System provides a chance to upsurge economic produce per unit area per unit time.
  • It links modules of diverse nature allowing harvesting various sources of nutrition.
  • Integrated Farming System recycles the waste materials effectively. For instance, at P.A. Bowen Farmstead, after the cheese is manufactured, the whey is provided to the pigs and poultry as it is a great source of protein. However, in case of industrial system, it can be a problem as whey cannot be disposed into the sewage system, but must be imposed on the community as a dry product.
  • It helps in increasing input efficiency and also benefits cost ratio.
  • It helps in minimizing environment pollution as the waste materials are recycled effectively.
  • It increases the labor requirement suggestively and would aid in decreasing the issues of under employment to a great extent. IFS offer enough scope to hire labor all-round the year.

At P.A. Bowen Farmstead, Geoffrey Morell and Sally Fallon Morell wants to showcase their farm as an encouragement to other novel and experienced farmers and their farms to produce great amounts of highest quality naturally raised food products and bring privileged circumstances to Southern Maryland and to farming societies all over the United States. P.A. Bowen Farmstead offers nutritious products like:

  • Conventionally cured bacon and ham and nitrate-free sausage and bacon
  • Pastured dry-aged beef, as well as organ meats
  • Artisan raw milk cheese such as Dreamy Creamy (DC Cheese), Prince George’s Blue Cheese, Chesapeake Cheddar and Aquasco Jack
  • Pastured beef and veal, chicken and eggs and turkey

In the year 1999, Weston A. Price Foundation is a well-known establishment which was founded by Geoffrey Morell and  Sally Fallon Morell along with nutritionist Mary G. Enig, Ph.D. The establishment’s main concern is to endorse and reestablish the nutrient-dense and natural food products through investigation, teaching, and even involvement. The foundation was founded on the ideologies of Dr. Weston A. Price’s study. Dr. Price was not only a well-known dentist but he was also known for his noteworthy philosophies on nutrition, physical health, and dental health which are widely held even today among investigators and humanitarians such as Mr. Morell.

Thus, it can be concluded by stating that Integrated Farming System can have immense significance of raising livestock.
