UW Extension online agriculture, horticulture conference boasts 50 presentations over 12 days

More than 50 presentations are scheduled during the University of Wyoming Extension agriculture and horticulture online conference Jan. 4-15.

“The virtual conference is a great opportunity for people to learn new information when unable to travel to traditional in-person type events,” said Brian Sebade, UW Extension educator.

The conference is free. Only registered participants will be sent a link to the conference. Registration is at

“The various presentations will be available over a set period of time to allow participants to view sessions at their convenience and provide a better opportunity to view sessions for those with busy schedules,” said Sebade. In addition, several live bullpen sessions (questions and answers) will allow participants the chance to interact with presenters.

Presentations are under seven topic blocks: livestock production; production agriculture; economics and risk management for agricultural producers; yards, gardens and acreages; succession planning; water management and drought; and economic and marketing outlooks.

Presentation topics span soil to pest management, native plants to backyard chickens, risk management analytics to managing cattle in drought conditions, and toxic plants to minimizing livestock losses during wildfires and blizzards.
