Farming isn’t easy, because as farmers know if it was more people would do it. But for those living the dream of farming, can’t do it alone. But how do you get a leg up on the challenges you face? Engaging the winter learning season at events that can help make a difference on your farm.
Mike Wilson, executive editor, Farm Futures, got an idea for an event more than 15 years ago focused on helping farmers keep getting better. The idea came from experts like Dr. David Kohl, who saw the need for a workshop environment where farmers could hear top speakers, but also interact in new ways to maintain a focus on lifelong learning. That’s the Farm Futures Summit, and a few years after it started, the Farm Futures Ag Finance Bootcamp was added. That one-day event is designed to fill a growing need for a deeper understanding of the financial forces at work in this business.
In this episode of Around Farm Progress, we dig into the meeting, what’s on tap for the 2023 edition and get some insight into why Mike Wilson accepts the challenge every year to put this event together. Give it a listen.
