GrassWorks to host 32nd Annual Grazing Conference 

GrassWorks – a non-profit, grassroots membership organization that provides leadership and education to farmers and consumers for the advancement of managed grass-based agriculture – will host its 32nd Annual Grazing Conference February 1-3, 2024 at the Chula Vista Resort in the Wisconsin Dells, Wisconsin. The Grazing Conference is GrassWorks’ signature event: an annual 3-day learning and community building experience.  

The 2024 conference theme is Building Resilience from the Ground Up so the conference will feature sessions that explore building resilience at every scale – from soil, to herds and pastures, to our changing climate, and to our communities. In addition to these sessions, there will be essential sessions for beginning and experienced graziers alike – from direct marketing and farm finances to vet and herd basics and legal best practices for farms.

“Managed grazing cultivates healthier lands, animals, and people – and thru this conference, we aim to support our graziers in cultivating resilient farms, businesses, and communities,” shared Patty Laskowski Morren, Executive Director of GrassWorks, “Year after year, this conference is such an enriching and nourishing experience for our farmers – where we can connect, learn, and inspire each other.”

The 2024 conference will also include

  • Tradeshow of 40+ product and service providers
  • Networking opportunities
  • Silent Auction and Raffle
  • Meals that feature grass-fed meats and dairy products and local, Wisconsin-grown foods
  • Evening entertainment: Musings of the Herd (MOTH) Storytelling Session, jam session, and local band performance

Registration closes Monday, January 22nd. Conference schedule and details on how to register for conference passes and meal tickets can be found at
