Company Executives Will Present the Following Timely and
Basics of Sustainable Agriculture
will discuss current trends in alternative crops, nutrient management, cover
crops, and other conservation practices that can assist you in meeting your
goals for sustainable agriculture. We will review the basics of leasing in a
changing economic environment.
Leasing 101 - Back to the Basics
ability for a landowner to determine a fair market lease can be a daunting
task. If you know the basics of lease negotiation such as the current market,
past and future production costs, and budgeting methods, it will allow you to
negotiate from a position of knowledge. We will discuss different lease types
and scenarios to assist you in making leasing decisions.
Back to the Basics of Land Values
land values have retreated from historic highs of recent years. We will delve
into the market fundamentals that have caused land values to trend lower in
most areas. The future impact of the trend on landowners will be discussed.
Commodity Super Cycle is Over - Back to the Basics
markets are moving back to historically normal market functions and seasonal
movements after spending 2010 to 2014 at unprecedented price levels. Grain
stocks have increased in each of the last two crop years, and we are once again
growing more than we consume. This creates a more challenging grain marketing
environment with smaller pricing ranges than recently experienced. Proven
marketing strategies will be absolutely necessary to maximize profit
The Basic Complexities in Planning for the Succession of Your
basic issues in planning for the future ownership of your farm are similar to
those of the past. However, future generations may have differing opinions as
to the issues of owning farm land. We will share our experiences of why
succession planning is so important if your goal is to transfer the farm to the
next generation by going "back to the basics".
