Announcing 2017 "Herd Fellow" Scholars
We are thrilled to announce the return of a hugely successful scholarship program for young farmers and ranchers to attend the 2017 Grassfed Exchange conference on Sept 27-29, 2017 in Albany, NY.
Once again, due to a very generous grant from the folks at “The Herd,” we are now accepting applications for young daughters, sons, veterans, interns and other new farmers to attend the 2017 conference under a scholarship program. The purpose of this program is to inspire and educate the next generation of young people to become regenerative grassland farmers and ranchers.
