Meal support for International Grassland Tour

Meal support for International Grassland Tour

Year: 2023
Project Leader: Jimmy Henning, Ray Smith, Krista Lea, and Brandon Sears
Department/Program: Plant and Soil Sciences
Funding: $750

For only the third time in its history, the International Grassland Congress is being held in the United States in 2023. Significantly, Kentucky has or will be the location and host of this conference two of the three instances. In 2023, the IGC will be held in Covington, Kentucky, and Dr. Ray Smith from the University of Kentucky is the IGC chair. Kentucky is offering four different mid-Congress tours that will show attendees the full scope of Kentucky's unique forage agriculture landscape. Hosting these tours will incur significant expense for meals, which will be mostly defrayed by registration fees. The Kentucky IGC tour planning committee would like to secure funds from the Barnhart Awards Committee to offset a small portion of these costs. Funding this project would further accentuate the commitment and support of the University of Kentucky College of Agriculture to the concept of the IGC and this specific meeting. These funds will ensure that the attendees will have a quality experience while in the Bluegrass State.
