Walk-in registrations welcome at High Plains No-Till Conference

KIT CARSON, Colo. – Jan. 27, 2023. The Colorado Conservation Tillage Association has announced that walk-in registrations for the 35th Annual High Plains No-Till Conference will be accepted during the event on Feb. 7-8 at the Burlington Community and Education Center.

Same-day registration pricing is $180 per person and includes lunch and snacks for both days, admittance to a Beer & Bull Social on Feb. 7, and access to the event’s trade show and educational sessions. Certified crop adviser and continuing education credits will also be available.

This year’s conference will feature more than 40 educational breakout presentations and Don Day Jr., Jason Mack, and Jim Gerrish as keynote speakers. Topics for sessions include tax considerations for estate planning, strategies for improving soil health, compost basics, regenerative grazing, direct marketing, farm profitability, and more. A complete schedule is available online at www.highplainsnotill.com.

The conference also showcases approximately 50 local and regional sponsors in an ag-specific trade show and outdoor equipment display during the event.

“The diversity we have in the trade show this year is exciting,” said CCTA Coordinator Joni Mitchek. “It will be a great place to connect with local ag businesses as well as nonprofits and research opportunities.”  

CCTA is also adding several new elements to the High Plains No-Till Conference for 2023, including a sneak preview of “Roots So Deep (you can see the devil down there),” a four-part documentary series directed by Peter Byck. The free preview will be shown on Feb. 6 at 3:30 p.m. in the Burlington Community and Education Center and is open to the public.
