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 beginning farmers—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.
