The Vermont Grazing and Livestock Conference

23rd Annual VT Grazing and Livestock Conference

Mark your calendars

January 18th and 19th

 for the 2019 Conference

Our 2019 conference features keynote speakers David R. Montgomery and Anne Biklè. Dave is a broad-minded geologist and Anne is a free-range biologist with a bad case of plant lust. Authors of the environmental trilogy Dirt, The Hidden Half of Nature, and Growing a Revolution.
  Join more than 350 farmers and agricultural resource providers from six Northeast states at this perennial winter conference for a cross-section of the region's livestock production.
The event takes places at the family-friendly Lake Morey Resort in Fairlee, VT just off Interstate-91. The weekend highlights local, grass-fed and organic foods, livestock farmers and supporters from over six states, and plenty of new ideas to take home and ruminate on as you plan for 2018.

  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
  The conference is coordinated by the 

UVM Center for Sustainable Agriculture's Pasture Program .
