Event Details


21st Annual VT Grazing & Livestock Conference
New Rules & New Ways of Farming: Shaping the Next 20 Years

January 20 & 21, 2017 Lake Morey Resort

Join more than 350 farmers and agricultural resource providers from six Northeast states at this perennial winter conference for a cross section of the region's livestock production.

The event takes places at the family-friendly Lake Morey Resort in Fairlee, VT just off Interstate-91. The conference rate on overnight rooms is $94/night plus tax.  Friday will feature two day-long pre-conference sessions on grazing planning tools and building farm businesses. Saturday includes 21 workshops plus keynote, lunch discussions, tradeshow and much more, as well as a kids' conference for ages 6-12.  The weekend highlights local, grass-fed and organic foods, great company from over six states, and plenty of new ideas to take home and ruminate on as you plan for 2017.

  What have some of these attendees liked best about past conferences?  

  • The...workshop was very informative and took a lot of information home with me. Met a lot of people and the networking was key.
  • Workshop range and quality
  • Innovative ideas, spirit of presenters
  • Being with other farmers, hearing their experiences
  • Great, varied, fresh speakers
  • Seemed like there was something for everyone at every session
  • Lunch was excellent and the ice cream was delicious!

Conference hosted by the Vermont Grass Farmers Association (VGFA) and the Vermont Beef Producers’ Associations (VBPA), and coordinated by the UVM Extension Center for Sustainable Agriculture.  Registration discounts are available for VGFA and VBPA members.  More details about the conference as well as registration are available at www.uvm.edu/pasture, and the up-to-the-minute full conference schedule is available here.   Contact conference coordinator Jenn Colby at jcolby@uvm.edu, (802) 656-5459 with any questions.
