The 21st Annual Spring Grazing Conference is being held on Wednesday and Thursday, March 21 and 22nd, 2018 at the Trinity Point Church of God in Clarion, PA.
This year’s conference will focus on many aspects of improving low input grazing systems. Sessions will cover topics such as brood cow efficiency and nutrition, how soil health and profitability are related, extending the grazing season, marketing opportunities, health and economics of grass finished meat and developing and implementing grazing leases.
Two keynote speakers Teddy Gentry and Greg Judy bring a wealth of knowledge gained through experience in tuning and evaluating the many pieces of a grazing system to maximize functionality and profitability. Gentry will share his insights into breeding cattle to fit environmental conditions along with how grazing management has benefitted his beef cattle operation. Gentry owns and operates the Bent Tree Cattle Co., located near Fort Payne. Greg wrote a book, entitled “NO RISK RANCHING, Custom Grazing On Leased Land”, which gives a complete breakdown on the methods they used to build their operation of 1,600 acres from scratch.
More than 30 companies and organizations will exhibit products and services during the event.
