Planning for the future is a key component in positioning your farm for long-term success. The 50th annual Purdue Top Farmer Conference will feature experts and sessions to stimulate your thinking about agriculture’s future and your farm.
Featured speakers include Purdue’s Jason Henderson, a former Federal Reserve Bank economist, discussing how you can successfully manage your way through the current ag cycle and Kansas State’s Art Barnaby challenging you to rethink your risk management strategy before you make your 2018 crop insurance decisions.
The conference is Jan. 9 at Purdue University’s Beck Agricultural Center near West Lafayette. It is one of the most successful and longest-running management programs geared specifically for farmers. Participants will interact with faculty from Purdue and Kansas State universities, in addition to farmer peers.
This year’s conference also offers you the opportunity to choose from two optional half-day pre-conference workshops on Jan. 8 that will provide in-depth learning opportunities focused on financial management or succession planning. Both workshops start at 1 p.m. on Monday, Jan. 8.
