Upcoming class slated for landowners, farmers


Do you own land that you cash rent out to a local farmer or are you the farmer that farms rented land? Do you want to learn more about contracts for the cash-rent agreement and other arrangements?

Classes will be offered 5:30-8:30 p.m. Wednesdays beginning Jan. 18 through Feb. 8 at the 4-H Exhibit Hall. The Power of Information and Open Conversation: A Land Leasing Series for Women in Agriculture program is a risk management education funded grant between Kansas, Nebraska and Indiana that focuses on land lease basics, written lease agreements, landlord-tenant communication, negotiations and conservation that is open to all, not just women.

Dinner will be provided at both classes and served at 5:30 p.m. Hoosier Heartland State Bank is sponsoring the meals. Register online for the class at puext.in/PowerOfNegotiation. Cost of four-week class is $50 and registration closes Jan. 16.
