International Grassland Congress 2023

The International Grassland Congress (IGC) will be held in Kentucky USA from May 14 to 19 and will offer the unique opportunity to listen and talk to grassland scientists, extension leaders, farmers, ranchers, and industry leaders from around the world. The theme of the conference is “Grassland for Soil, Animal, and Human Health.”

The IGC program is packed with academic presentations on the production, storage, and utilization of forages and will offer discussions of grassland policies, social issues, and ecosystem services. There will also be a trade show marketplace, which will be the hub of the event, where over 800 attendees from more than 60 countries will gather to visit with sponsors and exhibitors, network at evening receptions, and view scientific posters.
