The 19th Annual Grazing Conference, hosted by GrassWorks, Inc., will be held February 13-15, 2011 at Wilderness Territory Resort in Wisconsin Dells, WI. Join your fellow graziers, neighbors, colleagues and friends at the 2011 GrassWorks Grazing Conference. The theme, “Grounded in Grazing,” reflects this year’s focus on soil as well as the down to earth nature of the event and its participants. Last year, Dr. Pat Richardson’s workshop session on “Dung Beetles and other Soil Critters” was so enthusiastically received that we’ve decided not only to invited her back to speak again but also to designate an entire track to soil issues. Dr. Richardson along with other soil experts, researchers and seasoned graziers from around the region will be our guides through this vital microscopic world that is so inextricably linked to our own. Additional tracks address topics related to financial management, marketing/distribution, policy/program support, research and, as always, getting started in grazing.
