October 23-25, 2013
Welcome to the Missouri Dairy Grazing Conference web page! This conference will be held in Springfield, Missouri. Presentations will be given by university faculty, industry and dairy producers on the latest information related to dairy grazing systems. Farm tours will be held to local pasture-based dairy operations both during and after the conference. A trade show is planned for 30-40 businesses affiliated with this industry to showcase their products and information at the conference. Approximately 275 people attended the conference in 2011 from a total of 24 states across the U.S. and three countries.
It is a great opportunity for dairy producers and industry professionals to learn about the latest in grazing systems and network with other producers.
