[FEB. 1, 2007]  URBANA -- A select group of internationally known speakers will share the latest information on dairy grazing in a teleconference series sponsored by University of Illinois Extension on four consecutive Fridays in March.

"The title refers to the fact that the program will be held from noon to 1:15 p.m., and dairy producers can listen to the program in their home offices and view the accompanying PowerPoint presentations on their home computers," he said.

The enrollment is limited to the first 25 registrants and can be completed by contacting Seibert at 309-694-7501 or by e-mail to
