This years’ keynote speaker is Dr. Darrell Emmick, University of Vermont Extension. Dr. Emmick is the USDA-NRCS Grazing Land Management Specialist, New York State, holds a B.S. degree in Wildlife Biology and Management, a M.S. degree in Resource Management and Ecology, and a Ph.D. in Range Science from Utah State University. Darrell has worked for over 30 years researching, promoting, and helping farmers implement grazing‐based livestock production systems in the Northeast region of the U.S., with special emphasis on grass‐based dairy production. His primary research interests include understanding the foraging behavior of livestock, the use and management of species diverse naturalized pastures, evaluations of grazing management methods, matching livestock type to forage management strategy, evaluations of various forage species for use as pasture.
We are also building an excellent slate of local presenters to compliment the key note speaker that will provide a beneficial pasture management experience to a broad cross section of our producers.
