About the Conference 

is a conference designed for producers involved in or interested in the profession of managing livestock. It was developed with the goal of promoting environmentally and economically sustainable livestock production. We offer innovative and thought provoking sessions tailored to the current industry issues facing livestock producers.


This event covers a wide range of topics related to on-farm best practices for natural resource and livestock management and economic development. Each year the organizing team ensures the topics are interesting and relevant to the current industry climate. Workshop sessions have included livestock handling demonstrations, off-site watering system demonstrations, manure management, producer panels on a variety of topics, market updates, livestock health and much, much more.
