Grasstravaganza 2014, "Pasture Soil Health Creates Wealth," is scheduled for July 17-19 at Morrisville State College in Morrisville, N.Y.
Many graziers may remember the 2004 and 2008 events held in Binghamton, N.Y. Thanks to the USDA's Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), it is back again, but with a new two-day format and an optional Thursday evening reception.
Grasstravaganza 2014 will showcase a trifecta of great grazing and soil health experts:
- Jerry Brunetti of Agri-Dynamics, who is known for the "soil-to-plant-to-animal" health message.
- Jim Gerrish, former University of Missouri researcher, writer, and current cattle rancher and consultant from Idaho.
There will be various trips to local farms that will be led by these soil health and grazing masters.
