CNY Grazing Conference

Are you interested in learning more about adaptive grazing management, innovative farming techniques and what practices other successful grazers are implementing on their farms? Please join us to hear keynote speaker, Russ Wilson and other local grazers at this conference. Russ Wilson, a well know grazier, consultant and YouTube personality operates Wilson Land & Cattle Company in Tionesta, PA. His 220-acre family farm practices multispecies, adaptive grazing management optimizing the co-benefits of grazing cattle, sheep, goats, equine, hogs, and poultry. The farm’s low-input style of management incorporates both cool and warm season grasses and cover-crops, providing an extended grazing season while keeping soil covered year-round. Russ will share his experiences with beginning grazing management and how livestock diversification can benefit the farm and grow profitability. Afternoon speakers will cover topics on reclaiming and improving existing pasture and a farmer panel will discuss direct marketing successes and failures. Vendors will be on site as well. Lunch and break snacks will be provided. Please pre-register by March 15, 2023, at: Early registration conference fee is $25.00, day of event is $30.00.
