More than 35 practical workshops will be part of the 2008 Northeast Grasstravaganza, March 28-29 at the Holiday Inn in Binghamton, NY. One of the speakers will be Kevin Fulton, a Litchfield, NE, producer of grass-fed cattle. He’ll expound on how to stress the connections between healthy food and pastured animals in product marketing. Fulton produces hay and grazes his 1,000-head beef cattle herd on 2,800 acres, and is actively transitioning his land base into organic production. Other speakers will cover a variety of topics related to grazing and haying for different livestock species.
The event’s long list of sponsors includes the Cornell Small Farms Program and Central New York Resource Conservation and Development Project. To see a full conference lineup online, visit www.cnyrcd.org, contact the Central New York RC&D office at 877-384-8829 or call 607-334-3231, ext. 4.
