Featured speakers for the morning session will include Peggy Kirk Hall, Director of the OSU Ag & Resource Law Program and Barry Ward, Leader of Production Business Management in the OSU Department of Ag, Environmental and Development Economics department. An indepth look at land rent trends as well as establishing an effective lease will be the focus. Questions will be most welcome!

Lunch will be provided compliments Farm Credit Mid-America.

After lunch participants will get a comprehensive look at the new Farm Program being offered grain producers and land owners through Farm Service Agency. The choices to be made for participation will be explained and examples of the alternatives offered.
