Join OGRAIN for several events each year offering farmer-focused and research-based information useful to those transitioning to and involved in organic grain production.
UPDATE June 2020: Due to COVID-19 concerns, events this summer will be virtual rather than in-person. Please return to this page for updates as the season unfolds.
Summer Field Days
On-farm fields days have been cancelled for summer 2020. However, regular video field updates as well as numerous very informative workshop presentations can be found on our YouTube page!
Each winter at the end of January growers, researchers and industry representatives meet in Madison to share information and best practices about organic grain production. The 2021 OGRAIN Conference is tentatively planned for January 28-30. (Stay tuned for COVID-19 updates). Please plan to join us! The 2020 OGRAIN Winter Conference was January 24-25. We had a great event, you can view videos of the workshops from this link.
“Thanks again for putting on such a wonderful conference. We had so much fun and learned so much. It was a great line-up of speakers that brought very useful and challenging info, but also very encouraging and motivating.” Carl Gaudian, Albert Lea Seeds
“I believe this conference has hit the big time! Just because it is relatively young does not keep it from world class status. Timely topics, great speakers, nice venue, awesome staff!” Paul Bickford, Meadowlark Organics
Videos and powerpoint presentations from OGRAIN conferences offer a wealth of valuable learning. Find them from the OGRAIN Resources page.
