Red Deer will play host to the Western Canadian Grazing Conference and Trade Show Nov. 28 and 29.

Described as a forum for the “presentation and discussion of leading-edge theory and practical techniques in the fields of grazing and livestock,” the conference is held every two years. The 2012 edition will take place at the Sheraton Red Deer Hotel.

Presentations will focus on topics like soil health and grazing management, with an optional field tour on Nov. 27 to cover the swath grazing trials at the Lacombe Research Station.
