Southwest Washington Grazing Association

Livestock producers in Southwest Washington have formed a farmer-led association to share information, support each other, and protect the land.  The SW Washington Grazing Association offers education and networking opportunities around animal production systems and conservation grazing practices that build soil, support habitat, and provide a livelihood for rural families.  Membership is open to everyone .  Business meetings occur twice a year with events monthly.
