Ag Land Management Workshop (Dec 21, Grant NE)

Friday, November 18, 2016 - 2:00am

Ag Land Management Workshop in Grant, NE, Wednesday, December 21

The Landlord/Tenant Lease workshop will be offered at the Henry J. Stumpf International Wheat Center in Grant NE on Wednesday, December 21, 1:00 PM.  It is designed to help landlords and tenants put together a lease that is right for both parties, and help maintain positive farm leasing relations.

Topics for discussion at the leasing workshop include:

-  Latest information about land values and cash rental rates for the area and state;

- Lease communication, determining appropriate information sharing for both the tenant and landlord;

-  Lease termination, including terminating handshake or verbal leases;

- Review of common lease provisions with emphasis on common questions about provisions

- State/federal resources for beginning farmers and ranchers

- Other topics, like irrigation systems, hay rent, pasture rental agreements, and grain bin rental will be covered as time allows.

The free workshop is sponsored by the Northcentral Risk Management Education Center.  Registration is requested.  To register for the workshop, contact the Perkins County Extension Office at 308-352-4340.   Register by Friday, December 16, to ensure that there are enough handouts and refreshments.

            The workshops have been held extensively across Nebraska for the past few years with over 3,300 attending.  The vast majority of both landlords and tenants find the information to be very helpful in improving communications, setting rental terms, and learning about Ag land ownership types and alternatives.  As crop budgets tighten, it is even more important to attend and listen to the latest discussion about leasing issues.
