OSU Extension hosting ‘Farm Office Live’

Ohio State University Extension’s winter meetings are always a great opportunity to get the most up-to-date information on anything from ag law, farm management, ag economics, farm business analysis and other related issues

This year’s meetings will have faculty and educators with OSU’s College of Food, Agricultural and Environmental Sciences delivering that information through “Farm Office Live,” virtually.

“These sessions are geared towards all parts of agriculture, from farmers, of course, to agribusiness, lenders, appraisers, tax practitioners and anyone that has an interest in the economics and law aspects of the ag sector,” said Barry Ward, leader of production business management with CFAES. “We will kick off the meetings by covering what is in the latest COVID stimulus package and share how it will impact farmers because there are a lot of things in there that those in agriculture need to know about.”

Other topics to be addressed this winter include an outlook on crop input costs and profit margins, cropland values and cash rents, tax issues that may impact farm businesses, a legislative update, farm business management and estate planning updates.
