Farm lease workshop Sept. 21 in Milan

“Farm leases are a very hot topic right now with cash rents at their current level and crop and livestock prices dropping, so landlords and tenants need to make certain they’re getting what they believe they should be,” says Joe Koenen, MU Extension agriculture business specialist. The workshop will be held at the North Missouri Livestock Auction in Milan and begins at 6 p.m. on September 21. Workshop topics include current cash rents and trends, items to discuss and agree on in a lease, when and how to legally terminate a farm lease, recreational (hunting) leases and fair livestock and crop share arrangements.

Program cost is $30. For more information or to register, contact Koenen at 660-947-2705 or koenenj@missouri.edu.
