The Arkansas Grazing Lands Coalition (AGLC) sponsors field days and pasture walks to keep ranchers and landowners informed about the latest and most effective sustainable grazing practices. These events provide a first-hand look at rotational grazing, fencing techniques, watering systems, and more, implemented on actual working lands by Arkansas producers. Attendees also have the opportunity to learn more about the technical and financial assistance offered by the U.S Department of Agriculture through its grazing programs.

Follow AGLC on Facebook at @ArkansasGLC for notices on scheduled field days or contact your local conservation district or USDA county office to find out about events in your area.

This conference gives producers the opportunity to hear from their peers how sustainable grazing increases profitability and protects precious natural resources. It's also a great opportunity to meet and visit with other Arkansas producers, and conservation district and U.S. Department of Agriculture employees, and equipment and service vendors.

These producers are also available to speak in high school, college, and university classrooms.
