Grazing Organizer

The Illinois Grazing Lands Coalition (GLC) seeks to hire a contractor to assist in the development and implementation of the Roadmap for Expanding Regenerative Grazing in Illinois work plan and the general operations of GLC. The Roadmap’s key outcome is to transition 40,000 acres of Illinois farmland to regenerative grazing management by 2025. Regenerative grazing practices have financial benefits for farmers and are an excellent way for farmers to become more sustainable. This position will assist Illinois graziers with access to technical support; coordinate activities and promote the GLC and regenerative grazing activities throughout the state; address the gap in farmer knowledge and experience with regenerative grazing; continue to network and identify partnership opportunities and grow the relationships GLC has with current partners; and secure ongoing funding for GLC activities.
