Who: Women non-operator landowners who are working with beginning farmers, and own more than 40 acres, may have inherited farmland, or are feeling overwhelmed with all of the decisions of farmland management.
When: Friday, Aug. 3, 2018, 9 a.m. (to beat the heat!)
Where: West Blue Farm, 146 Co. Rd. 1900, Milford, Nebraska
West Blue Farm has sold direct market fresh meat since 1990, and the operation has recently transitioned to a beginning farmer couple.
Attendees will learn about how to look at areas of risk, learn to communicate with their operators, and will be able to ask questions about the operation. Topics include financial risk management, grazing, and farm diversification.
In addition, attendees have an opportunity to pick up a risk management planning guide and join in a learning circle-style discussion on conservation, land transitions, multi-generational management structures, and long-term business goals.
There is no charge to attend, however registration is requested to make sure we have enough materials and refreshments available.
