2024 Agroforestry Symposium: Silvopasture in Practice
January 17, 2024 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm
Every year, the Center for Agroforestry at the University of Missouri hosts a public Symposium to grow connections and raise awareness about important work happening in our field. Always free and open to everyone, the Symposium provides both virtual and in-person opportunities to participate.
This year’s Symposium: Silvopasture in Practice will celebrate collaboration and encourage knowledge exchange between the science and research community, farmers and ranchers, technical assistance providers, and the general public.
Silvopasture practices have emerged as some of the most critical agroforestry tools for carbon sequestration and farm system integration. As funding and technical assistance for silvopasture establishment becomes more readily available within new and existing incentive programs, we understand the need to convey the complexity of these integrated systems, the challenges producers face, and stories of success. In addition to sharing farm-level insights, this year’s Symposium will bring together the country’s leading scientists and practitioners exploring silvopasture’s potential, to identify a roadmap for future research needs, to solidify connections, and to spark new collaborations.
In-person and virtual options available.
