Hotel reservations due by December 20

The 2018 annual conference will be held in Latham, NY at the Century House Hotel and Conference Center on January 25 and 26 prior to the Winter Green-Up Grass-Fed Beef Conference being held on January 27 at the same location. The Century House Hotel and Conference Center is located on Route 9 within a half mile of the Adirondack Northway I-87, exit 7.

The Century House in Latham, New York is hosting the 2018 Northeast Pasture Consortium on January 25 and 26. I am sending this email out to let you know that the special room rate is $114.00 plus taxes each night with reservations required by December 20th, 2017 or the hotel rooms will be released into the General Inventory. The Century House is a Choice Hotel member. Tell them that you are attending the Northeast Pasture Consortium Conference to get the special rate. Reservation desk phone number is: 1-844-207-2428. If you are also going to attend the Winter Green-Up Grass Fed Beef Conference on January 27, the special room rate of $114 also applies for it. As usual we will start on the first day, January 25, at 8:00 AM, so you may want to reserve a room for the night of January 24th.

The December Consortium News Update will contain a full conference agenda with another reminder to get your hotel room reservations in by Dec. 20. We will have a session on flexible riparian area pasture management that our Pasture Systems & Watershed Management Research Unit of USDA-ARS in University Park, PA has been working on the past 3 or 4 years at our request, 2 sessions on soil health, producer showcase session, a poster paper session of interest to pasture farmers and support people, a session on ruminant fatty acid research that challenges past research that has dampened demand for whole milk and meat products, and sessions to prioritize research, education, and technical assistance needs.
