MFGA Celebrating Regenerative Agriculture In November

Regenerative Agriculture farm practices and knowledge will be front and center throughout the month of November as Manitoba Forage and Grassland Association (MFGA) takes its annual conference online with no admission fees.
 
"Thanks to the incredible support of our conference sponsors and the determination of the MFGA board and staff to continue to advance Regen Ag in Manitoba, MFGA will offer the entire 2020 MFGA Regen Ag Conference over four Thursday nights in November - online free of charge," says Larry Wegner, MFGA chair. "We have lined up four of the best of the best global experts in their respective areas of regenerative agriculture knowledge to give our attendees a great cross-section of information and dialogues around each of the keynote presentations."
 
Each of the Thursday nights will follow the same template. An international keynote speaker will start the evening with a 40 minute pre-taped presentation, followed by a 20 minute moderated online live Question and Answer period. The second hour of each webcast will feature Manitoba-focused panels featuring Manitoba producers and industry experts who will discuss the night's presentation in a Manitoba context.
 
"MFGA declared our corporate position on regenerative agriculture in 2018 for exactly this reason," says Wegner. "This is our third conference and each one has been a bit different. We had been planning to make this year our biggest in-person event but we all know what happened there. With MFGA, the glass is half-full and we've worked hard to bring in these awesome speakers so we don't lose a year of momentum here."
 
Wegner notes MFGA is proud to have Ryan Boyd, a Forrest, MB farmer, MFGA Board Member and 2019 Nuffield Scholar as one of the four keynote speakers alongside Diana Rodgers, Nicole Masters and Mark Shepard.
