Kevin B. Shelley, Outreach Program Manager, University of Wisconsin-Madison/Extension

Professionals certified through the American Society of Agronomy as Certified Crop Advisors (CCA) working in organic crop production, and those professionals interested exploring approaches to organic production, can obtain continuing education units (CEU’s) at the 2017 MOSES Organic Farming Conference. The conference, conducted by the Wisconsin-based Midwest Organic and Sustainable Education Service (MOSES), will be held February 23-25 in La Crosse, WI.

Advanced registration is OPEN until Feb. 9, and walk-in registration after that. The conference offers a total of 115 CEU credits to attending certified crop advisors in three days of programming in many of the 65 workshops on field crops, livestock, dairy, market and specialty crops, plus strategies to help you manage and grow your business. Whether you are experienced in, or new to organic production, you’ll find workshops tailored to your needs. CEUs are also offered in several popular pre-conference Organic University courses which offer a deep dive into a particular farming topic and a custom-made resource book. These courses take place Thursday, Feb. 23. See the 2017 course topics here. Finally, there is a trade show featuring over 170 exhibitors from resource groups, certification agencies, buyers, processors, cooperatives and suppliers in the organic industry.
