2021 MFGA REGEN AG CONFERENCE NOV 15-17

Lock down your calendar right now for the 2021 Manitoba Forage and Grassland Association –  2021 MFGA Regenerative Agriculture Conference, Water for Generations, held November 15-17, 2021.

It is still a bit early so organizers aren’t sure how to present the conference agenda – either online, in-person or probably some kind of hybrid of both – but they do urge people to plan for the fourth annual event!!!! The agenda will include a trio of top-notch keynote speakers and producer panels including international, national and local experts, all focusing on regenerative agriculture and much more.
