We will discuss perhaps the most important question of our time.
What can farmers do, on their land, to thrive without using animals?
The survival of our planet may well depend on helping farmers evolve to something better for them and for the planet.
On Saturday, FEBRUARY 6, farmers, ranchers, scientists, food and agriculture experts, business leaders, activists and technologists converge to tackle this challenge.
We hope you can join us.

The Rancher Advocacy Program (RAP) Summit is a convergence of trailblazers interested in creating solutions for farmers and ranchers. RAP has spent the last six years supporting ranchers and their families as they come to grips with the devastating reality of animal agriculture; concurrently, we have been developing key relationships with organizations, entrepreneurs, academics, and investors keen on transitioning animal farms away from traditional methods. How can farmers thrive on their land without using animals? We will have critical conversations with expert panelists and farmers in transition from all over the world–and together we will push the needle ever further in the direction of solving this question. The imminent concerns around food, the economy, the animals, and climate will take all of us working together to reframe the vegan proposition and bring farmers and ranchers to the marketplace of ideas.
A round-table (solution oriented) conversation with:
RANCHERS IN TRANSITION
PLANT BASED INDUSTRY LEADERS
ANIMAL & CLIMATE ACTIVISTS
SPECIAL APPEARANCES FROM TRANSITIONING FARMERS
WHO SHOULD ATTEND?
CATTLE RANCHERS & ANIMAL FARMERS
We welcome folks in the animal ag sector to attend with an open mind. You will be encouraged to join the conversation and ask questions. We are here to support, educate, and provide resources and options for you in this growing space of farm transitions.
Plant-based industry experts and manufacturers who want to learn more about RAP and partner with us are invited to the RAP Summit. The Summit will also feature industry leaders who will share their visions and innovative solutions and strategies for transitioning into a plant-based economy.
The RAP Summit will feature companies that provide plant-based alternatives and/or who are revolutionizing the meat, dairy, cheese, and egg industries.
ADVOCATES & ACTIVISTS
The RAP Summit will bring together animal rights activists, environmentalists, social justice advocates and concerned citizens who have the skills and desire to participate within the RAP model as allies willing to understand the need for and embrace compassionate conversation with ranchers/farmers.
