Rancher-activist to headline logging conference

Jeff Fowle, an Etna, Calif., rancher who has been at the forefront of agriculture's social media revolution, will be a featured speaker at the Sierra Cascade Logging Conference Feb. 7-11.

Fowle, a past president of AgChat Foundation, will give the keynote address at a kickoff breakfast Feb. 9 at the fairgrounds here. He'll also lead a seminar Feb. 10 on how foresters and other farmers can use social media to their advantage.

The 63rd annual conference and forest products exposition will also include panel discussions on the public safety threat caused by marijuana gardens, forest carbon regulations and other topics.

The event also includes logging exhibitions, log loading and truck driving skills competitions and a "backhoe rodeo". Tickets are required for the breakfast, a luncheon and banquet.

We'll see if any articles about Fowle's "radical conservatism" are forthcoming. :)
