Southern Indiana Grazing Conference
Despite the unfavorable winter weather conditions, the 2014 SIGC took place as scheduled. Several agencies/organizations worked together to host the Conference: The Daviess County Soil & Water Conservation District, the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service, Indiana State Department of Agriculture, Indiana Grazing Lands Conservation Initiative, and the Indiana Forage Council. The SIGC Planning Committee would like to thank all of our Conference Sponsors: Byron Seeds, Indiana Farm Bureau, Praire Farms, and John Conti. Although attendance was down due to the weather, we were pleased to have 140 in attendance from all across the state, as well as from Ohio, Kentucky, Illinois and Tennessee. Speakers Jim Gerrish and Kathy Voth shared a wealth of knowledge and ideas that many in attendance were eager to try in their own grazing operations. Thanks to all who braved the bad weather to attend what was a very interesting and successful Conference! The SIGC Planning Committee appreciates all the feedback from evaluations - this is vital to planning a successful conference in 2015.
Mark Your Calendars - the date for the 2015 SIGC has been set for March 4, 2015 at the Simon J. Graber Building, 9164 E 875 N, Odon Indiana 47562. Hope to see you all there!
