Themed β€œThe Dollars and $ense of Grazing,” the conference will focus on economics, business strategies and how to sustain productivity for the long haul. There will be informative presentations and demonstrations of interest to those with cattle, goats, and sheep. Keynote speakers for the conference are Jim Gerrish and Bob Hendershot. Gerrish is an independent grazing lands consultant providing service to farmers and ranchers on both private and public lands across the U.S. and internationally. Bob Hendershot started Green Pasture Services, a pasture consulting service, after retiring from the USDA-Natural Resources Conservation Service as the state grassland conservationist and state Grazing Lands Conservation Initiative coordinator for Ohio. With a reasonable registration fee of only $100, if registered by March 5, and room rates at a discounted price, the Appalachian Grazing Conference is an excellent value.
