Land rent workshops


By Jerrold Tesmer

Posted in All Agriculture

Three Land Rent Workshops have been scheduled for Houston, Fillmore, and Winona Counties. The first will be Thursday evening, November 7, 6:30 p.m. in room 108, Fillmore County Office Building, 902 Houston Street NW, Preston.

The other two workshops will be on Saturday, November 9. The morning workshop will be in the Houston County Justice Center, lower level, East meeting room, in Caledonia from 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. The afternoon workshop will be at the Winona County Office Building, 202 W 3rd Street, Winona from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. in conference room B.

Winona Extension Educator Jake Overgaard and Fillmore/Houston Extension Educator Jerry Tesmer will share information from three recently revised publications from the North Central Farm Management Extension Committee. They are “Fixed and Flexible Cash Rental Arrangements for Your Farm,” “Crop Share Rental Arrangements for Your Farm,” and “Pasture Rental Arrangements for Your Farm.” We will also look at local and national trends in land rent. Much of the local information is based on 18 years of the Fillmore County Land Rent Survey.

At the Fillmore County site, Jessica Bronson, NRCS District Conservationist, will provide additional information on Conservation Compliance. The prevented planting acres this year raised a number of questions on the issue.

A worksheet will help participants determine fair and profitable rental arrangements. Pre-registration is preferred to guarantee an adequate supply of handouts. Walk-ins will be welcome. For further information contact Jake Overgaard, Winona County Extension 507-457-6445 over0128@umn.edu or Jerry Tesmer in Fillmore County at 507-765-3896 tesme001@umn.edu or in Houston County at 507-725-5807.
