Landmark Services Cooperative will be hosting its annual farm management workshops February 4 in Deforest, Wis., and February 5 in Janesville, Wis.
“The 2013 farm management workshops will provide useful planning and production tools for agriculture producers of all scopes and sizes,” said Kristi Lange, communications and events coordinator for Landmark Services Cooperative. “As this year’s theme suggests — “Every farm has a history: Managing your farm for the future” — discussions will help producers combine lessons learned with new industry tools to plan for a successful year.”
The 2013 Landmark farm management workshops will include presentations on market outlooks, cutting-edge technology, agronomy, animal nutrition, grain and energy topics to help producers best plan for 2013.
The February 4 workshop will be held at the Comfort Inn & Suites in Deforest, Wis., and the February 5 workshop will be held at the Pontiac Convention Center in Janesville, Wis. Both sessions will run from 10:45 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
The 2013 keynote speaker will be Mike Pearson, host of the nationally syndicated show Market to Market. During his presentation, titled “What’s Driving Agriculture in the Year Ahead?” Pearson will provide a forecast for U.S. farm markets and global trends and discuss his experiences as a full-time lender and part-time farmer in south-central Iowa.
Attendees will also have the opportunity to choose two breakout sessions from four farm planning workshop options:
