Notes From The Conference

Beef Evaluation Component - Question @ Rib Eye Comparison
It's a week to the day that Wild Rose Farm attended the 2011 Appalachian Grazing Conference in Morgantown, WV.  Those folks in West Virginia sure know how to hold a conference!   We only made it for the 1st day, but we came home with a bag of goodies & info.  The goodies in the logo bag that we all got at registration?
  • A wonderful new glossy full color book included in the registration; "Identification & Adaptation - Common Grasses, Legumes, & Non-leguminous Forbs of the Eastern United States" by Dr. A. Ozzie Abaye of Virginia Tech.  (For $55.00 includes shipping payable by check to Virginia Tech Foundation. Order the book via: Kimberly C. McCoy Administrative & Office Specialist Crop & Soil Environmental SciencesVirginia Tech 424 Smyth Hall (0403)Blacksburg, VA 24061 Phone: (540) 231-5797 Fax: (540) 231-3075).  
  •  Found a DVD "Silvopasturing in the Northeast - How Land Owners Can Maximize The Use Of Their Land" by Christine O'Dell for $5.  Still need to watch this, but it should fit in with our tree thinning project!
  • A 2011 - 2012 "Pennsylvania Conservation Planner" calendar included in the registration.  Our friend Laurel from the  Greene County Conservation District was part ot the team that created this calendar. 
If you get a chance to go, this conference is held every two years & there was some talk of PA Project Grass & other PA ag organizations putting on a conference in alternate years ....
