Default Howdy to our friends in the US!

Grazebook would like to say a big "Howdy y'all" to any of our Rangelands friends in the United States, particularly those following a link through from the Quivira Conference Speakers page.

http://quiviracoalition.org/cgi-bin/...=1%20target%3D

Please feel welcome to sign up as a member in these early days of Grazebook as we progress through testing and build towards our imminent launch!
The power of modern communication will certainly prove to be one of the greatest leaps forward as a tool in building a sustainable global Rangelands.

Well here we go, am safely in Albuquerque and looking forward to a full program over the next three days.
Presentation is on Thursday afternoon so hopefully can keep everyone awake on the last day!

Good on you Ben keep up the good work over there as an ambassador for the Rangelands. You can follow the conference on Twitter Quivira Coalition "@QuiviraAgRanch" For those not on Twitter it is a great means to keep up with the news and find out what is going on if you are like me and don't always get in in time to see the news on the box. Ben is speaking at 2:15pm local on Thursday, NFI as to what time that is here, probably around midnight. All the best

Thanks Gus, been a good first day with the conference proper starting tomorrow.
Had a full day workshop with a fellow, Jim Gerrish, of American GrazingLands Services LLC
www.americangrazinglands.com who had some interesting variations on the normal HMI/Sustainability train of thought. The evening was with Bill McKibben and Bill deBuys, both who are well known climate change advocates. Had hoped there may have been a bit more about the role of the rangelands in sequestration etc but was basically breezed over with an admission of not knowing much/enough to comment in detail.
as always though, these events are as much about the fantastic people you meet who aren't presenting.

A really great day yesterday with some diverse speakers.
A highlight though was a new concept they called the New Agrarian Career Connection where they sat prospective employees and mentors at tables and allowed young folk to meet them for 2-5 minutes as a type of speed dating version of a job interview for both full job placements but especially for apprenticeship type placements which are becoming very popular over here in getting new people onto the land from a wide range of backgrounds.
Was certainly taking mental notes from the sideline to bring home, was very popular for both parties.
The big day today!

I'm told there is an actual audio visual somewhere, but for now this is the best I can manage for my presentation:

‎48 minutes.
Suggest also downloading the powerpoint too and trying to syncro them:
