  What have some of these attendees liked best about past conferences? 

The...workshop was very informative and took a lot of information home with me. Met a lot of people and the networking was key.
This conference is committed to quality information about grass farming. I appreciate the focus and enthusiasm.
Innovative ideas, spirit of presenters.
Being with other farmers, hearing their experiences.
The organizers have done a great job finding interesting speakers from across the country.
Rather than another gathering of the usual suspects, I feel renewed hearing new speakers with new perspectives.
Seemed like there was something for everyone at every session.
Lunch was excellent and the ice cream was delicious
