The Original Landowner Workshop Series for over 40 years!
Company executives will present the following timely and informative topics:
The Big Picture
Our opening presentation will focus on a high level view of current issues and opportunities in agriculture, while setting the stage for the day's presentations.
Technology - The Corner Piece of the Lease
Today's technology at the farm level provides a landowner with the opportunity for full transparency of yield, inputs, and overall farm condition. This presentation illustrates how that transparency can help landowners analyze various lease alternatives and determine the best lease option.
The Key to Determining a Fair Lease
Back to back years of declining income at the farm level continues to pressure lease terms. This presentation will discuss how knowing the production potential of the land and the actual costs of growing the crop are two keys for all landowners to understand as they strive to negotiate a fair lease in today's market.
The Next Generation Puzzle
How do you fit all the pieces of farmland ownership planning together? Learn how other landowners have pieced together plans and how to solve issues you might run into as you look to the next generation of ownership.
Commodity Market Holds the Puzzle Together
When a landowner leases out a property, they are leasing out the productive capability. Regardless of lease type, productive capability is impacted by yearly crop yield and the prices at which the producer can sell that crop. Both components go into determining what is a fair rent each year. We will present both a high level world and local view of commodity markets to give landowners the tools they need to understand the productive capability of their property.
Solving the Land Market Puzzle
Landowners, buyers, and sellers are looking at the current land market and asking about today's prices and where values are heading in the future. We will examine the pieces of the land market puzzle to shed light on where land values are today and where they might be heading.
