Governor Wes Moore on Sept. 13 addressed hundreds of workforce professionals at the Maryland Workforce Association’s “Raising the Bar” conference. Gov. Moore was joined by Maryland Department of Labor Secretary Portia Wu, Maryland Workforce Association President Kirk Murray and Maryland Workforce Association Executive Director Brandon Butler for the annual event, which presents an opportunity for workforce and educational professionals to connect and discuss innovative workforce development solutions for job seekers, youth and businesses.
The Maryland Workforce Association comprises 13 local workforce directors who collaborate with the Maryland Department of Labor and state workforce partners to share best practices, advocate for the public workforce system, and build relationships with elected officials and businesses throughout the state. Local workforce development boards connect Marylanders to job opportunities through services provided at Maryland’s 32 American Job Centers and are regional leaders in the data-driven, business-led talent development that is essential to Maryland’s economic competitiveness and in ensuring the state’s economic growth.
The Maryland Grazing School will be held Sept. 21-22 at the Western Maryland Research and Education Center in Keedysville from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day. Designed with producer interests in mind, this two-day grazing school will offer a more in-depth education on pasture and grazing management.
The course features multiple hands-on exercises to provide participants with opportunities to work with grazing tools and fencing materials. Topics covered will include forage selection,
pasture assessment, grazing management, pasture allocation, fencing and watering options, extending the grazing season, and more. Enrollment is limited to 30 people to keep the group
small and allow for more interaction and networking opportunities.

This event is held in partnership by University of Maryland Extension, the Maryland-Delaware Forage Council, Maryland Grazers Network, NRCS, and NE SARE.
