We offer learning opportunities all year long
Many events are still being held virtually in 2020 and until the COVID-19 crisis is resolved. Please check back for updates to these learning opportunities.
Central MN Ag Lenders Conference
The Central MN Ag Lenders Conference is a one-day conference held annually in early fall and brings together professionals in the agricultural lending and agricultural financing community from across the region. Each year, our speakers cover relevant agricultural finance topics varying from taxes to characteristics of a top-farmer. This conference will not be held in 2020. Check back for information in Fall 2021.
Dairy Risk Management Strategies workshops compare the Farm Bill’s Dairy Margin Coverage with other risk management strategies. Determine which dairy programs are best for your dairy and learn the pros and cons of tools that can help you set a floor for your milk price. These events are free and typically held every four years after a new Farm Bill is passed.
Farm Bill crops meetings
University of Minnesota Extension and the Farm Service Agency hold free educational seminars to help crop producers understand decisions regarding the 2018 Farm Bill reauthorization of ARC and PLC programs. This USDA video series helps explain the main provisions of the crops programs.
Wondering what is acceptable to charge or pay for land rent in Minnesota? Farmland rental workshops are held to help farmers, landlords, and professionals determine a fair farmland rental rate.
