Representatives from the Office of Proposal Development and the Office of Sponsored Programs will be present to answer questions.

2:00 pm-Dec 8th 3:00 pmReturning to the Farm Holiday Inn-Downtown
Bringing a young person into a farm/ranch operation presents challenges. However, the business operation can accomplish numerous goals by helping the young person get a solid start in the operation, keeping the farm/ranch in the family, and ensuring a comfortable retirement for all involved. Success does not come automatically; it requires effort.

We strongly recommend that all members of the management team attend all four days of sessions. Each day will build on material from the previous sessions.
