Grassland Coalition December Road Show will feature Gabe Brown
   BROOKINGS, S.D. - The South Dakota Grassland Coalition, SDSU Extension and other partnering organizations celebrate another successful year by offering a great educational opportunity to members and non-members alike during the 2017 Road Show December 11 - 15 coming to several South Dakota Communities.  
   Gabe Brown will be the featured speaker during the roadshow stops in Hot Springs, Chamberlain, Crooks, Watertown and Aberdeen.   
   Gabe Brown is recognized as a national leader in the soil health movement. He converted his North Dakota farm from conventional tillage and grazing practices to a regenerative approach that has drastically reduced input expenses and increased profitability. These new management practices have also improved the overall health of his soil, livestock and lifestyle.  
   Event organizers ask that attendees RSVP to the contacts listed for each location below if possible for the meal, but walk ins are welcome. Registration at each event will begin at 9:30 am. Cost is Free to current Grassland Coalition members and $30 for non-members and includes a 1-yr membership with admission to Coalition events, tours, etc. For any general questions, contact Judge Jessop at 605-280-0127. 
   During the road show, Gabe will share details of transitioning a farm away from conventional mentality and methods. He will discuss how the decision to embrace alternative management has improved the health of the air, water, plants, animals and people associated with his operation’s farming and grazing strategies.
