How can you reduce costs and generate significantly more profit from your cattle operation? Understanding how to better utilize the resources you already have through adaptive management is the key to supporting cattle performance on pasture and reducing input costs. 


Join Dr. Allen Williams, a 6th generation family farmer and adaptive rancher in Mississippi, for an introduction to principles of adaptive grazing as a foundation for incorporating finished beef into whole farm and ranch planning.


Dr. Williams is a leading expert in adaptive forage and grazing management, grass-fed genetics and reproduction, marketing, and the grassfed market. Allen pioneered many of the early grassfed protocols and forage finishing techniques and has spent the last 20 years refining those. He has consulted with more than 4,200 farmers and ranchers in the U.S., Canada, Mexico, and South America on operations ranging from a few acres to over 1 million acres. He is a “recovering academic” having served 15 years on the faculty at Louisiana Tech University and Mississippi State University. He holds a B.S. and M.S. in Animal Science from Clemson University and a Ph.D. in Genetics & Reproductive Physiology from LSU. He has authored more than 400 scientific and popular press articles and is an invited speaker at regional, national, and international conferences and symposia. With Teddy Gentry, Allen wrote the book, Before You Have A Cow and has written for GRAZE, Organic Broadcaster, Stockman GrassFarmer, and many other publications. He currently serves on the Board of Directors of the Grass Fed Exchange and the Mississippi Sustainable Agriculture Network, and is a co-investigator for Team SoilCarbon and the Pasture Project. When he is not traveling to ranches or speaking engagements across the hemisphere, Allen serves as an officer in the Starkville Civitan Club, the local Volunteer Fire Department, and is active in his local church.
