The conference, which will feature presentations by a number of organic marketing, grazing and entrepreneurial experts, is designed to give participants an in-depth look at the ins and outs of organic agriculture and grazing production methods and marketing. For example, conference goers will learn what it takes to organically control weeds, pests and diseases, where to buy or how to produce organic seed, how to comply with federal organic rules, how to become organically certified and more. Those who use or are considering grass-based livestock systems will learn about important topics such as forage selection, fertility and soils, livestock genetics for grazing systems, animal health issues, watering systems, pastured hog production, raisingheifers and finishing beef on grass. Other sessions will feature marketing strategies, product positioning, diversification options, value added opportunities and meat processing. MDA Supervisor Mary Hanks said the conference is a must for anyone interested in getting into the organic or livestock grazing industries. "There is increasing grower and consumer interest in livestock grazing management and organics because markets at home and abroad are calling for products raised using these production methods," Hanks said. "Minnesota is already a leader in organic grain production, and we have the environmental, human and business resources to male it a leader in natural and organic dairy, beef and ready-to-eat products as well. This conference will show producers what it takes for them to capitalize on these growing opportunities." A trade show will also run throughout the conference, and three intensive, pre-conference workshops on business planning, beginning grazing and an organic short course for agriculture professionals will be held on January 23, at the Kelly Inn in St. Cloud. The cost for the conference is $100 if registration is paid before Jan. 17. The cost is $125 after Jan. 17.

Multiple sclerosis is a chronic, often disabling disease of the central nervoas system. Symptoms may be mild, such as numbness in the limbs, or severe, such as paralysis or impaired vision. Most people with MS are diagnosed between the ages of 20 and 40, but the unpredictable physical and emotional effects can be lifelong. The progress, severity and specific symptoms of MS in any one person cannot yet be predicted, but advances in research and treatment are giving hope to those affected by the disease.
