At National Farmers, we value our members and we value your input. In fact, we’re established in a way that means we need it. Where do we get this informative farmer input? At state conventions and national convention each year.
We also host other events from time to time, educational workshops and gatherings of ag producers or staff in certain areas. Our program, FarmStarts, provides training for beginning farmers who have been in the business for less than 10 years.

Cattle, Grain and Milk Producers
Whether you produce conventional grains, milk or beef, it’s getting tougher to make real profits today. That’s why we offer AgProfit Strategies Workshops in 15 states across the heart of farm country.
These farm workshops are put by National Farmers Organization—a group of farmers who market conventional and organic production. Completely free, these day-long meetings provide good information to seasoned and beginning farmers alike—real tools you can go home with to help you in your current operation, or the one you hope to start someday.
Filled with advanced information about marketing, risk management, budgeting, and operational structure—you’ll be mighty glad you made the decision to attend one in your area.
And, if you have been farming ten years or less, you can receive a $200 payment to help cover the costs from being away from your farm or job.
Topics may differ, depending on the meeting location.
