Speaker: Craig Maier

Topic: Managed Grazing: Linking People, Food, Animals and the Environment

Craig Maier, a native grasses restorationist who studies the use of pasture-based farming in prairie reconstruction, will discuss the practice of managed grazing, how it impacts Wisconsin’s environment and wildlife, as well as livestock health and human nutrition. You’ll gain a broad understanding of the Wisconsin grazing community’s interest in good land stewardship and suggestions for supporting this vital part of our local economy. The Grazing Ambassadors Project sponsored by GrassWorks Inc. connects Wisconsin grazing farmers and experts with non-farming communities to foster dialogue about the practice of managed grazing.

Fee: Free for all participants ($5 Donation Appreciated)
