2019 OGRAIN Organic Winter Conference
This two-day intensive offered by the Organic Grain Resources and Information Network (OGRAIN)at UW-Madison features expert farmers, researchers and industry representatives sharing their knowledge about organic grain production in the Upper Midwest along with ample opportunity for networking and discussion. At this fourth annual conference several workshops will focus on succeeding with organic no-till.
The 2019 Organic Grain Winter Conference will be held Thursday, Friday and Saturday, January 24-26, 2019 on the UW-Madison campus.
This year a limited number of spaces are available for a Thursday evening casual discussion on no-till, with snacks and a cash bar for an additional $18 registration. This discussion will be held at Brocach Bar, 7 W. Main Street, on the Capitol square.
The event is available to anyone with an interest in learning more about organic grain production. We offer sessions specific to the needs of beginning farmers (farming for fewer than 10 years). Sessions relevant to those already engaged in organic production will also be presented.
