When we asked Johnny Wood to share his thoughts about the potential impact of regenerative agriculture, here’s what he had to say:
“Regenerative agriculture allows small scale operations and young producers to have their own viable piece of the market without the large capital investments as commercial agriculture. The more young and small producers an area can attract and hold on to does nothing but benefit the overall strength of the community.”
We invite you to come to this year’s Grassfed Exchange Conference to hear from Johnny and other young farmers from across the country who will be sharing success stories of how regenerative agriculture is opening the door to a host of new opportunities including multi-species grazing, stacked model enterprises, direct marketing and more.
We are pleased to announce the winners of the 2nd Annual Herd Fellowship scholarship program for young farmers and ranchers to attend the 2017 Grassfed Exchange conference on September 27-29, 2017 in Albany, NY.
Due to a generous grant from the folks at The Herd with support from White Oak Pastures, we are able to grant a total of 27 scholarships to young daughters, sons, veterans and interns from 20 different US states to attend the 2017 conference.
Over the life of our conference we have had thousands of people attend with attendees from 6 different countries (90% of which are farmers and ranchers.) If you market to the grazer and/or the grass fed producer, you will want to consider sponsoring this years event.
