2018 Organic Grain Winter Conference

Join area row crop producers Friday and Saturday, January 26 and 27, 2018 on the UW-Madison campus to explore beginning and advanced topics focused on successful organic grain production and marketing. This two-day intensive offered by the Organic Grain Resources and Information Network (OGRAIN) and the Farm and Industry Short Course (FISC) at UW-Madison will guide farmers in taking advantage of the rapidly growing market for organic grain.

Presentations, panels, and discussions led by experienced organic farmers, researchers, agency personnel and industry representatives will engage attendees. We’ll learn from experts as well as the expertise that each participant brings. Keynote presenter Klaas Martens brings a vast storehouse of knowledge from years of diversified grain production on 1,600 certified organic acres in upper New York state.

The two-day event is just $80.00 per person, which includes 15 presentations, a resource book, access to sponsor information tables, as well as light breakfast and full lunches on both Friday and Saturday. Please register by Monday January 22. Walk-in registrations for $95 may be available but check this website before you leave to see if  space is available!  https://ograin.triforce.cals.wisc.edu/
