Land and Leasing Webinars to Cover Cash Rents, Landlord-tenant Issues for 2024

The latest agricultural land management and leasing considerations for 2024 will be covered during two virtual landlord/tenant cash rent workshops hosted by the Center for Agricultural Profitability at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln on Wednesday, March 27 and Thursday, March 28.

The workshops, part of the center’s “So You’ve Inherited a Farm … Now What?” series, will cover Nebraska land industry topics for farms and ranches. Those include evaluating current trends in land values and cash rents, strategies for successful land transitions, lease provisions, legal considerations and managing communication and expectations among family members. Creating and adjusting estate plans will also be covered.

The presentations will be led by Jim Jansen and Anastasia Meyer, both extension agricultural economists with the Center for Agricultural Profitability.

The March 27 workshop is scheduled for 9 a.m. to 11:30 Central time and will be geared toward viewers in central and western Nebraska. The workshop on March 28 is set for noon to 2:30 p.m. Central time and will feature examples more relevant to viewers in eastern Nebraska. Regardless of location, the general information presented in both meetings will be the same. Presentation materials will be mailed to participants and provided online.

The virtual workshops will be held on Zoom and are free to attend, but registration is required.
