[00:00:04.247]The Nebraska Women in Agriculture program,
in conjunction with Women in Agriculture
[00:00:08.457]programs at Purdue University and
Kansas State University,
[00:00:12.659]will host a four-part extension workshop
on the basics of land management,
[00:00:17.101]leasing and conservation
for landlords and tenants.
[00:00:20.856]“The Power of Negotiation and
Communication: Land Leasing Strategies
[00:00:24.935]for Midwestern Ag Women”
will begin Wednesday, Jan. 18 at numerous
[00:00:31.071]sites in Nebraska, Kansas and Indiana
including right here in O’Neill, Nebraska.
[00:00:36.401]The series will focus on writing
agricultural lease agreements,
negotiations and conservation practices.
[00:00:46.734]Workshops will be held on Wednesday,
Jan. 18, Jan. 25, Feb. 1, and Feb. 8.
[00:00:54.754]According to Department of Agriculture
census data from 2017, there are over
[00:01:00.999]90,000 women producers and over 51,000
female landlords in the three states.
[00:01:07.669]“Women represent an important and
growing demographic in agricultural
[00:01:11.727]land management and this workshop
series will teach essential
[00:01:15.347]management information while
providing women the chance
[00:01:18.757]to ask questions, connect with
each other and share their experiences,”
[00:01:22.757]said Jessica Groskopf, director of the
Nebraska Women in Agriculture program.
[00:01:28.049]Each state will host multiple satellite
workshop sites with local extension personnel.
[00:01:33.527]Keynote speakers will be simulcast to
each location and each site will provide
[00:01:38.827]additional speakers and
[00:01:42.157]Dinner will be included.
[00:01:44.397]Groskopf said the program’s structure
is intended to strengthen networks
[00:01:48.627]of women in rural areas,
which can provide opportunities
[00:01:52.517]for building trust
and sharing information.
[00:01:55.557]“Connections are so important
to women farmers,” she said.
[00:01:59.247]“We have seen the benefits
that come from knowing your peers,
[00:02:02.647]having a place to share difficulties
and mitigate the isolation
[00:02:06.167]that so many of us in
agriculture often feel.”
[00:02:09.757]These workshops seek
to help participants increase
[00:02:12.157]their awareness of local land
values and cash rental rates
[00:02:17.177]and the factors that influence them.
[00:02:19.479]They will also cover the importance
of having a written lease and the
[00:02:22.719]items that should be included in it to ensure
an equitable agreement for all parties.
[00:02:27.943]Participants will learn negotiation
strategies as well as best practices
[00:02:32.061]to improve relationships
between landlords and tenants.
[00:02:36.061]Conservation programs will also be covered,
so that participants will have a greater
[00:02:41.279]understanding of compliance requirements
and increase their awareness of
[00:02:45.279]voluntary conservation programs
that are available to them.
[00:02:50.341]The workshop costs $50 per person and
participants should plan to attend each session.
[00:02:56.141]A virtual option is available
for those unable to attend
[00:03:00.143]a workshop site, for the
cost of $75 per person.
[00:03:04.107]In-person attendance is
highly encouraged to
[00:03:07.387]better network with other attendees
and interact with speakers.
[00:03:12.326]Register by Friday, Jan. 13
[00:03:22.559]or contact the local Holt County
Extension Office at 402.336.2760.
