OGRAIN Winter Programs to be Held Virtually in 2021

The University of Wisconsin-Madison's Organic Grain Resource and Information Network, or OGRAIN, has announced multiple virtual winter programs starting this month and continuing through March. Open to all farmers and agricultural professionals, these sessions cover topics critical to designing, implementing, and marketing a productive and profitable organic grain rotation.

This year's OGRAIN programs--which includes two workshop series and one virtual conference--will support farmers in keeping their operations strong and resilient in the face of shifting market dynamics.

"As winter approaches and we're all more isolated than we might want to be, OGRAIN is excited to continue building community and providing impactful educational experiences for farmers across the Midwest," says OGRAIN Program Leader Erin Silva. "Even with the cancellation of in-person events, we are committed to providing opportunities for farmers to learn from both researchers and practitioners, despite some of the challenges we've seen this year."

Weekly workshops on managing for low organic grain prices will be offered every Friday from 12:00 to 1:30 p.m. between mid-November through March. All sessions are free and will be hosted via Zoom with a phone-in option.

Two monthly virtual Information Exchanges on building carbon-positive organic systems with reduced tillage, and organic food-grade cereal grain production will be delivered during hour-long sessions.

And OGRAIN also announced it will partner with MOSES and several other organizations to collectively host its 'Growing Stronger: Collaborative Conference on Organic and Sustainable Farming,' with workshops spanning in late February.
