NCAT soil specialist Nina Prater and livestock specialist Linda Coffey are hosting
three workshops in October for Arkansas ag professionals, educators and mentor farmers
to explore regenerative grazing and soil health. The workshops will include discussion
on the rise of the phrase "regenerative" agriculture and what that means in practice
as well as breaking down soil health and how it applies to grazing management. This
series will also include hearing from Arkansas graziers that have successfully implemented
adaptive grazing management strategies.
All workshops are FREE with lunch provided at on-farm workshops. Participants are encouraged to attend both
the virtual and an on-farm workshop, but attending both is not required.
For questions please contact Nina Prater at email@example.com
