Nebraska Grazing Conference to Discuss Regenerating Resources


Gabe Brown will be touring across Nebraska to speak with landowners about regenerating resources.

Brown, along with his wife Shelly, and son Paul, own and operate a diversified farm and ranch near Bismarck, ND.

The Browns holistically integrate their grazing and no-till cropping system, which includes multi-species cover crops, with all natural grass fed beef, poultry and sheep allowing them to not use synthetic fertilizers, pesticides and fungicides.

The following topics will be discussed at Brown's presentations:

  • Decreasing inputs while increasing yields
  • Livestock – The missed income opportunity
  • Producing corn for only 1.42/bu.
  • Regenerating your soil resource.
  • Opportunities to bring the next generation into the operation.
  • Lowering your cow wintering costs

The cost to attend his presentation is $15, which covers the cost of the meal. Preregistration by November 11 is required to reserve a meal. Registrations will be taken until full.
