Give Thanks and Don’t Miss the Soil Conference!

ATTRA: Voices from the Field is taking a bit of a holiday break this week to celebrate Thanksgiving with friends and family. We sincerely hope that everyone has a terrific holiday. Next week, we’ll be back with the second in the Direct Marketing Meat series. In it, Linda Coffey and Dave Scott, both livestock specialists with NCAT’s ATTRA sustainable agriculture program, along with Dave’s wife, Jenny, will talk about the always important issue of processing.

In the meantime, don’t miss the chance to register for the inaugural Soil Health Innovations Conference, March 30-31, 2020, in Bozeman, Montana, on the campus of Montana State University.

You’ll hear farmers and ranchers from around the country tell their stories on achieving soil health profitably, along with the perspectives of scientists, private companies and other experts.

Some of the topics that will be covered at the conference include:

  • The connection between soil health and water management
  • Building healthy soil on a large scale
  • Regenerative grazing practices
  • New markets for soil carbon sequestration
