Kansas Landowner Conference


YOU’RE INVITED: K-State Department of Agricultural Economics is looking forward to hosting the inaugural Kansas Landowner Conference. We are offering a new conference tailored to folks who have agricultural land in Kansas, but do not reside on the property. The inaugural Kansas Landowner Conference is designed to be a resource where landowners will build networks and increase their knowledge in many aspects of land management. The conference will focus specifically on agricultural land market conditions, land lease management techniques, and property tax regulations.

The conference will be Friday, November 10, 2023 in Manhattan, Kansas. A block of rooms are available at the Holiday Inn at the Campus, as are tickets to the K-State vs. Baylor football game held on November 11, 2023. Please come early and join us for breakfast and stay late for our social event. Make a weekend of it, if you want, and stay for the football game. A link for discounted tickets will be emailed to you after you register. 

Join us for this exciting inaugural event. We look forward to seeing you in November!
