Champaign County Farm Bureau and OSU Extension-Champaign County have partnered together to start the Landowner’s Club. This is open to Farm Bureau members and it consists of informational meetings once a month. The Landowner’s Club will meet on the 4th Thursday of the month from 8 a.m. to 9 a.m. (with a few exceptions) in the Champaign County Community Center.
Land is an expensive and important investment that is often handed down through generations. As such, it should be cared for and maintained to remain profitable for future generations. Whether it is a change in regulations or a loss of knowledge with the loss of a generation, it can be difficult for landowners to stay on top of everything.
The Landowner’s Club is designed to help farmland owners understand critical conservation and farm management issues. Topics will range in expertise level from beginner to advanced, so landowners of all experience levels can gain knowledge, skills and confidence to implement, or talk with tenants about, farming and conservation practices.
The series is free to Farm Bureau members and $5 for non-members. A light breakfast will be served. Register online at http://go.osu.edu/Landowners.
The club organizers are interested in learning what topics are important to landowners, so please send your suggestions to Amanda Douridas at [email protected] or bring them with you to a meeting.
