Keynote speakers

Hugh Harvey

“Concepts and Considerations When Planning for Estate Succession in Agriculture”
This presentation will cover key concepts and the many considerations that families should be aware of when developing an estate plan to pass assets to the next generation.  Also discussed will be the do's and don’ts of estate planning.

Luke Linnenbringer

“Grazing Cover Crops and Annual Forages”
Luke will discuss the role of annual forage crops in his direct market beef operation in central Missouri.  His goal is to have green and growing feed in front of yearling stockers throughout the spring and summer months until the cattle move to a feedlot for finishing.  Learn what forage crops he raises for his feed chain and how these forages are grazed to produce beef that is direct marketed off the farm.


Trade show exhibit booth spaces are still available for vendors.  Booth registration fee is $100 and the deadline is February 11, 2016.  All the details are in the Vendor registration form (PDF)
