Back To All

The American Forage and Grassland Council is hosting the International Grassland Congress (IGC) in Covington, Kentucky, USA, from May 14 to 19. The congress offers producers, researchers, extension personnel and others a unique opportunity to listen and talk to grassland scientists, farmers, ranchers and industry leaders from over 60 countries around the world. The theme of the conference is “Grassland for Soil, Animal, and Human Health.”

The IGC program is packed with academic presentations on the production, storage, and utilization of forages and will offer discussions of grassland policies, social issues, and ecosystem services. There will also be a trade show marketplace, which will be the hub of the event, where over 1,000 attendees from more than 60 countries will gather to visit with sponsors and exhibitors, network at evening receptions, and view scientific posters.

One day during the congress is reserved for area tours (included with registration) in Kentucky, Indiana, and Ohio. There will also be optional pre-congress tours in the Southern Plains, Southeast, Northeast, and Pacific Northwest regions of the U.S.
