This gathering happens once every three years, with farmers and ranchers sharing their experience, researchers describing how their latest discoveries can improve success, and conservation organizations and land management agencies offering examples of partnerships that made all the difference. It’s a great opportunity to talk with each other one on one about what works, what doesn’t, and what we can do to help each other succeed.
Call for Papers
The National Grazing Lands Coalition coordinates the event with lots of help from sponsors and folks like you. So now’s the time to get involved. The deadline for submitting abstracts is May 15. And before you say, “Me?! Speak?!” let us say, “YES!” We’ve highlighted some of the great presentations from the 2015 conference in On Pasture articles and they were by people just like you who wanted to help their fellow farmers and ranchers. This year’s theme is “Taking the Gamble Out of Grazing.” Here’s the Call for Papers, and here’s the link for submitting your paper or story. If you have questions, contact Monti Golla.
We’re Speaking! Tell Us What You Want to Hear About
We’re scheduled to speak, and we have some ideas about what we’d like to talk about. But what about you? What do you most want to hear about from us? Monti and the folks at NatGLC want to make sure you get what you want too. So if there’s something you really want to have covered, let us know in the comments below, or drop us an email.
We’re really looking forward to seeing you all in December and sharing our stories!
Rachel and Kathy
P.S. Full disclosure – though we work with NatGLC and their Executive Director (and our friend) Monti Golla on different things, they’re not paying us to say any of this. We’re doing this because it’s a great event full of great information and it’s really worth going to. 🙂
