South Central College Hosts Ag Symposium - Wednesday, February 19, 2014
Experts to share the latest trends with area agribusiness producers
Today’s agricultural producers are adapting to a landscape that is constantly changing. They are expected to be economists, commodity specialists, financiers, brokers, mechanics, transportation logisticians, managers, and more. South Central College’s Foundation is providing a one-day professional development opportunity to assist area farm families with keeping a finger on the pulse of their dynamic industry.
South Central College Foundation is proud to announce the sixth annual New Tools for New Rules Agricultural Symposium. This regional professional development opportunity is designed for all agricultural producers. New Tools brings world-class speakers to the campus of South Central College for a day of cutting-edge presentations and discussion. The event is scheduled for Wednesday, February 19, 2014, from 8:30 AM – 4:00 PM in the John Votca Conference Center.
Scheduled to appear are Dr. Michael Boehlje and Dr. David Kohl. Both are experts in their respective field and will introduce conference attendees to the ‘new rules’ facing 21st century ag producers. They will also be providing attendees with “new tools” to address these challenges, making them more productive and profitable farm managers.
During the late afternoon session, attendees will be allowed to interact with our political leaders in Agriculture. Invited guests to participate in the afternoon sessions include Senator Amy Klobuchar, Congressman Tim Walz and Congressman Collin Peterson.
