Farming for the Future

Farmers and ranchers are currently experiencing one of the biggest downturns in history with many parallels to the 1980’s. Planning for the future is critical for the short-term viability of the farm business but also for the long-term growth and sustainability of the farming legacy.

This program will offer a host of outlook talks to assist in planning for the upcoming years.  Having a grasp of input costs and projected prices can assist in making equipment purchasing decisions, land rental arrangements, cattle and grain marketing plans, and much more. Managing a farm’s financials will also be discussed, as it pertains to the current economic times.

At the end of the program there will be sign-up opportunities to work one-on-one with a K-State Farm Analyst.  These appointments will be locally offered approximately 3 weeks after the Farming for the Future program to assist producers in gathering their financial information and planning for the upcoming year and future direction of their business.

Registration fee for this program is $20.00 in advance (5 days prior to meeting date) or $30.00 at the door.
