Better pasture management can result in both healthier profits and a healthier planet. The Wisconsin Grazing Conference, organized by GrassWorks, Inc., is a key event for grass-based farmers or “graziers” who raise all species, and at all levels. Topics range from “mob grazing” to pastured poultry to the health benefits of grass-fed meat, eggs and dairy products.

This year’s conference will feature over 25 sessions and 30 exhibitors. Attendees will have the opportunity to hear thought-provoking and inspiring speakers, enjoy delicious local meals and network with the best graziers from around the region.
