Living and Working on the Land Conference Sept. 3-4 in Sheridan

August 8, 2014

Backyard poultry, horse health and boarding, beekeeping, growing small fruits and alternative energy are among topics at the “Living and Working on the Land: Building Blocks of Success” conference Sept. 3-4 in Sheridan.

Other sessions include making local food systems work, women on the ranch, marketing, small-scale dairies (including cheese making) and ag of the future.

Agricultural producers, land managers, hobby farmers, small-acreage owners, backyard gardeners and local food enthusiasts will all find something to fit their skill level and areas of interest, says University of Wyoming Extension Specialist Cole Ehmke, one of the conference organizers.

Early registration by Aug. 15 costs $50, while the fee after that is $65, which includes meals and tours. The first 50 agricultural producers to register for the conference are eligible for a full refund of the registration fee. A limited number of scholarships for lodging also are available to producers.

To register, contact Kacy Atkinson with the Wyoming Business Council’s Agribusiness Division at (307) 777-6319 or email
