DGA will be at the 21st annual Vermont Grazing and Livestock Conference, January 20-21, 2017. 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 conference rate on overnight rooms is $94/night plus tax. Friday will feature two day-long pre-conference sessions on grazing planning tools and building farm businesses. Take Friday night to learn about livestock and watering systems in Kenya with a special presentation by Maasai visitors, or to celebrate biodiversity at a screening of SEED: The Movie. Saturday includes 21 workshops plus keynote, lunch discussions, tradeshow and much more, as well as a kids' conference for ages 6-12. The weekend highlights local, grass-fed and organic foods, great company from over six states, and plenty of new ideas to take home and ruminate on as you plan for 2017.
