WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. — The Heart of America Grazing Conference will take place Feb. 20-21 at the Ferdinand Community Center in Ferdinand. Hosted by the Indiana Forage Council, with input from Purdue Extension, the annual event will feature forage and grazing experts from across the nation.
Speakers will lead discussions on cutting-edge research in grazing, soil science and grazing options with cattle and small ruminants, among other key topics.
Keith Johnson, professor of agronomy at Purdue University, says, “Participants will have the opportunity to interact with a team of presenters on what is needed to develop and put in place an effective grazing plan. Ways to improve grazing efficiency, how to develop and maintain healthy soil and important recordkeeping items will be shared. There will be ample opportunity to interact with input providers at the tradeshow and to make connections with other attendees.”
Highlighted speakers include Greg Halich, University of Kentucky; Alan Franzluebbers, USDA-ARS North Carolina; and Johnny Rogers, coordinator, Amazing Grazing Project and North Carolina State University.
