Annual Nebraska Grazing Conference (Since 2001)
The Nebraska Grazing Conference (NGC) is designed for people with an interest in the utilization and conservation of our grazing lands, and a desire to learn the most current information on grazing livestock systems and their impact on our lands.
Beginning and experienced graziers, land managers, and policy makers can all benefit from attending the NGC. While the focus is on Nebraska, information is applicable beyond its borders, evidenced by the fact that participants come from several states each year. The average attendance at the NGC is 200 participants.
Past conferences have been held in Kearney, NE each August. The event is planned by an organizing committee comprised of people involved in the state's grazing livestock industry, as well as public and private sector educators and land managers. The committee uses the suggestions from annual conference evaluations to bring in speakers of interest to attendees, making topics current and relevant. Each conference brings in a national speaker of prominence to provide a keynote presentation.
This year's conference has concluded. Our next conference is August 6-8, 2018 in Kearney, NE. Information about the conference will be posted as it becomes available.
