Event Description

Alfred, NY—Alfred State to host Grasstravaganza ’16. An event for farmers, conservationists, and consumers who are interested in soil health, grazing, and sustainable agriculture, will be held on the Alfred State campus July 4-6.


The conference Healthy Soils, Healthy Animals, Healthy Farms, will feature presentations by national and local grazing and soil health experts who will cover a range of topics, interactive soil health related activities, and a trade show.

 

The featured speaker this year is Dr. Fred Provenza. For more than 38 years, Dr. Provenza has produced groundbreaking research on livestock grazing behavior. This work has influenced research in areas from nutrition and foraging behavior of animals and humans, to rural sociology and development.

 

Additional speakers include: Justin Morris, NRCS Soil Health Specialist; Dr. Bern Sweeney, Director, President, and Senior Research Scientist at the Stroud Water Research Center, an independent research institution focused on stream and river ecology; and Dr. Guy Jordarski (tentative), a holistic dairy veterinarian with nearly 30 years of experience in the industry, who now acts as the consulting veterinarian for the 1600 dairy farms in the Organic Valley milk cooperative.
