What you missed at the last Grazing Conference…..
The 5NCGL was an unique, producer-based, national conference that brought together over 450 ranchers, farmers, land managers, grazing specialists & conservationists to learn more about technology advancements, and how to increase the sustainability of the Nation’s grazing lands. The event focused on grazing lands and the conservation benefit they can offer to America’s livestock producers, watersheds and wildlife.
Oklahoma’s U.S. Representative Frank Lucas (R) presented remarks during the opening session. In addition, Dr. Temple Grandin, renowned animal scientist shared strategies for improving animal welfare. Other noted presenters included: Kit Pharo shared his philosophy on moving from a production mentality to one of profit for beef production; animal behaviorist, Fred Provenza, who imparted his thoughts on nutritional wisdom amoung livestock and humans; and Dr. Don Ball and Dr. Garry Lacefield.
Many attendees thought that the opportunity to listen and learn from real-life producers who are successful stewards of the land was the true “magic” of the event.
