Farm rental workshops coming soon

By Dave Bau, Extension educator

Landlords, farmers and agri-business professionals should make plans to attend one of the informative in-person meetings being held across Minnesota in November and December. These free meetings are being provided by the University of Minnesota Extension. Farmland rental rates are the largest input cost the farmer has. Determining a fair farm rent agreement is always challenging.

Three farmers walk the field of small grains.
Negotiating a fair rental agreement that satisfies the land owner and the farmer is a challenge. David Bau and Nathan Hulinsky, Extension educators in ag business management, will use examples, factsheets and worksheets to teach attendees how to determine a fair farmland rental rate for both parties.

Visit Extension's land rent page for the complete schedule of dates and locations of the workshops. Attendees will receive several informative worksheets and factsheets that will help to determine what is a fair 2022 farmland rental rate is. Some in-person locations will require face masks to be worn during meetings, so plan to bring a mask with you to all workshops.

The meetings will be held from November 3 through mid-December 2021. There will be follow-up Zoom meetings scheduled regionally across the state in January and February.
