Registration open for 2013 Iowa Grazing Conference

Those who use grazing in their livestock operations are encouraged to register now for the 2013 Iowa Grazing Conference, set for June 25 to 26 in Creston.

Iowa State University Extension and Outreach beef program specialist Joe Sellers has been involved with the conference for several years and said this year’s event has classroom and field experiences.

“The organizing committee has planned an extensive program, with topics ranging from forages to management and economics to grazing and wildlife,” Sellers said. “Breakout sessions also include cover crops and the environment, and we’ll have live animal and weed and brush control demo sessions as well.”

The conference will be held at the Southwestern Community College campus in Creston, and runs from 1 p.m. June 25 to noon June 26. In addition to breakout sessions and a producer panel, the event also has a pasture walk and barbecue meal on the evening of June 25. Event sponsors are Iowa Forage and Grassland Council, Practical Farmers of Iowa, Iowa Beef Center, Iowa State University Extension and Outreach, Southwest Community College, North Central Sustainable Agriculture Research & Education, Southern Iowa Forage and Livestock Committee and the Grazing Lands Conservation Initiative of the Natural Resources Conservation Service.

“The conference speakers will provide useful and timely information from university and industry perspectives, and those who attend will have access to a wealth of knowledge at a great price,” Sellers said. “Members of IFGC or PFI can attend the two-day event for $40, and those who aren’t members will pay $50 when registered before June 24. Walk-in registration is $10 higher.”

The conference brochure with full agenda and registration information is available on the IBC website http://www.iowabeefcenter.org/events/2013GrazingConferencebrochure.pdf.

For more information, contact Sellers by telephone at 641-203-1270 or by email at sellers@iastate.edu.
