The MN Grazing Lands Conservation Association (GLCA) is hosting the third annual Grazing and Soil Health Videoconference on Thursday December 5, 2013.
Here is the link to register for the videoconference.
There are 9 locations throughout the state where you can participate in the videoconference. The opening addresses this year will be by Don Baloun, NRCS State Conservationist, and Dave Schad, DNR Deputy Commissioner.
The keynote speaker is Dr. Kristine Nichols, USDA-ARS in Mandan, ND. Dr. Nichols will discuss the importance of soil biota in farming systems and why grasslands and cover crops are so vital to the biota and for profitable farms.
Representatives from the DNR will discuss opportunities for grazing on public and private conservation lands. The always popular farmer panel will discuss many ways they utilize pastures and cover crops in their livestock and cropping systems.
