Interested in learning more about proper grazing lands management and stewardship sustainability? Then ride to Reno, Nev. this December to hear first-hand from cowboy and industry experts how to take the gamble out of grazing at the 7th National Conference on Grazing Lands, Dec. 2-5, 2018, being held at the Peppermill Resort Spa & Casino.
“With more than 50 producer speakers lined up for this year’s conference in Nevada, attendees will hear from a wide variety of cutting-edge innovators and leaders on best practices for managing their grazing lands in an environmentally sustainable and economic manner,” said Chad Ellis, chair of the National Grazing Lands Coalition (NatGLC).
Fred Provenza and Jim Gerrish are just two of the renowned speakers on tap to share decades of experience. Provenza, professor emeritus at Utah State University, has more than 30 years of research and experience under his belt and is nationally recognized for his behavior-based landscape management systems. He will be speaking and leading a panel on soil health, plant health and human health on Wednesday at the conference. Gerrish, a producer and consultant, is dedicated to teaching others about managing grazing lands for environmental and economic sustainability.
U.S. Army Staff Sergeant Shilo Harris will round out the conference on a high note with his inspirational speech. Harris, who has an amazing and tragic story, will be speaking on overcoming adversity in life. He will also be doing a book signing immediately after his talk for his book Steel Will.
