The 2023 Nebraska Grazing Conference will be held August 8 and 9 at the Younes Conference Center in Kearney, Nebraska. This year, conference speakers will highlight grazing lands conservation, emerging issues in grazing lands, and precision livestock management. The scheduled speakers are Curt Pate and Ruth Woiwode.
The conference will begin with a field tour from 9:30 am to 11:30 am. Discussion topics will focus on stress-free livestock management. There is no fee to attend the field tour.
Another highlight is the recognition of the 2022 Leopold Conservation Award recipient. This year’s recipient is the Logan Pribbeno Family from the Wine Glass Ranch located in Imperial, Neb. This will begin a panel discussion from the current and several former Leopold Conservation Award winners who will provide an assessment of their past, present, and future grazing land conservation efforts. Tentative panelists are Nancy Peterson, Homer Buell and Tim Kalkowski.
Other scheduled speakers include Shelly Kelly (The Sandhills Task Force), Rebecca Kern-Lunbery (Ward Laboratories), Leah Peterson (The Nebraska Grazing Lands Coalition), Jeff Nichols (USDA-NRCS), and Jerry Volesky and Gwendwr Meridith (University of Nebraska-Lincoln).
The second day of the conference is devoted to precision livestock management with a focus on available technology. Scheduled speakers include Yijie Xiong and Mitch Stephenson from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln followed by a panel discussion of technology users.
