Though the news out in the world isn’t always feeling very positive these days, we here in the Northeast Pasture Consortium see well-managed pasture as a bright and shining light. Around the country and the world, increasingly research projects and public-private partnerships are examining the relationships of animals, soil, carbon, biological and ecological systems, local and regional economies, and human nutrition. For some of us who have been in this arena for a while, it feels a little bit like the rest of the party is now waking up to what we’ve known all along; pasture has an important role to play.

We appreciate everyone who took the time to participate in our 2022 Virtual Annual Meeting on March 24, which featured a full day of scientific and experiential presentations, posters, and discussion, including a real-time 2022 Grazing Research Priorities-setting session. Printable agenda (PDF).
