2017 Nebraska Grazing Conference

Ag Calendar
Aug 8, 7:00 AM - Aug 9, 8:00 PM
Kearney, NE, USA




The 17th Annual Nebraska Grazing Conference is scheduled for August 8 and 9 at the Kearney Ramada in Kearney, NE. The two-day conference brings in regional and national speakers to address a wide-variety of subjects of interest to beginning and experienced graziers. Land managers, policy makers, as well as those concerned with the utilization and conservation of our grazing lands will also find this conference worthwhile.

Keynote speakers include Jim Gerrish, grazing consultant/owner, American GrazingLands Services LLC, and Peter Ballerstedt, forage product manager, Barenbrug USA. Gerrishs sessions are entitled Fences and Water Points: Where They Should Go, and Fencing and Water Development Workshop. Ballerstedts sessions are Grass-based Health and the Ruminant Revolution, and Selecting Cool-season Grasses for Irrigated or Dryland Conditions.

The cost to attend both days of the conference is $80 (regular) and $50 (student) if registration is completed before August 1, and $100 (regular) and $60 (student) if registration is completed after August 1. Full registration includes lunch each day of the conference, one admission to the evening banquet, and a copy of the conference proceedings manual. The first 20 students to register before August 1 will have their registration fee covered by the University of Nebraska-Lincoln College of Agricultural Science and Natural Resources. Registration options are available for those who are unable to attend the full two-day event.

In addition, booth space is available to exhibitors during the conference. Organizations interested in this opportunity are encouraged to contact Brent Plugge at plugge1@unl.edu or (308) 237-3141.
