Land Management in the Next Decade Programs Start Aug. 13

Nebraska Extension’s upcoming workshop series, “Land Management for 2020 and Beyond,” will provide the latest information to operators, tenants, and landowners to effectively manage land. The series will be held at five locations across Nebraska in August and September.

Nebraska Extension Educators Austin Duerfeldt, Jim Jansen, and Allan Vyhnalek are teaming up to present on a variety of topics including

  • ag finance and the real estate market;
  • current trends in agricultural finance across Nebraska;
  • negotiation skills needed to effectively manage land leases;
  • current considerations on lease provisions; and
  • strategic farmland succession and communications.

“Austin, Jim and I have put together an excellent set of topics and have completely re-written our land management curriculum for this set of workshops.” said Vyhnalek. “We encourage both landowners and farmers to attend to hear the same message about land management in the next decade.

The workshop series begins Aug. 13 in Hastings and will make stops in Albion, Hartington, the Eastern Nebraska Research and Extension Center near Mead and in Lincoln. For a complete list of dates, locations, and registration information, visit  

Registration to attend the three-hour workshop is $15 per person or $25 per couple, which will cover the program, refreshments and handouts.  Registration is requested two days before the start of the scheduled meeting to ensure enough handouts for the program.
