South Dakota Grassland Coalition

NEW EasterN SD Grazing School August 11-13

The SD Grassland Coalition is taking the Grazing School on the road.  We will be offering a new Eastern SD Grazing School Aug 11-13 at the Abbey of the Hills near Marvin, SD.  The school is tailored to all producers of course, but we are especially encouraging young producers to attend.  The last couple years have been challenging, and there is a wealth of knowledge to be passed down to the next generation of grazers.

To get the SD Grassland Coalition membership rate, you can join online first before registering for the grazing school. 

Details are below.  A full agenda with speakers will be shared with registrants as we get closer to the date. 

Registration for the Eastern SD Grazing School is $150 for members of the SD Grassland Coalition and $185 for non-members, which includes an annual membership.  Registration includes meals but not lodging.  To register, contact Judge Jessop at or 1-605-280-0127.  You can print and mail in this Brochure: 2021 EAST Grazing School Brochure
