Our conference theme this year is "Educating Farmers and Connecting Communities" which has guided our conference committee . We are proud to announce welcoming keynote speaker Cherilyn Nagel, Saskatchewan Farmer and Ag Advocate who will tell her story about the importance of educating communities on farming in the 21st century. We have Dave Brandt a no-till, cover crop, livestock producer from Ohio to inspire us like Gabe Brown did last year, on the potential of a diversified operation. We have renowned soil scientist Elaine Ingham presenting on how to build healthy soil and thought provoking idea of perennial cover crops replacing no-till fallow. Also Curt Livesay on high-yield production strategies; and Andrew Ross helping us understand gluten, falling numbers, and the impact to markets. We have a full track how to's and benefits of integrating livestock back into the farm. Plus, tons of opportunities to network and learn from other direct seeders, industry experts, and researchers.
If you are thinking about transitioning to direct seed or are a seasoned direct seeder, I guarantee you will find this conference valuable.
