The Power of Negotiation and Communication: Land Leasing Strategies for Midwestern Ag Women

A 4-part workshop for landowners and tenants.

Build your land management and leasing knowledge while networking with other women in agriculture at our upcoming workshop series, which will be held at various sites throughout Indiana and virtually from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. on the following dates:

  • January 18th
  • January 25th
  • February 1st
  • February 8th

 “The Power of Negotiation and Communication: Land Leasing Strategies for Midwestern Ag Women” is a three-state collaboration of extension women in agriculture programs at Kansas State University, Purdue University, and the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. Sessions will be held simultaneously at multiple locations in Kansas, Indiana, and Nebraska.

These workshops will help raise your awareness of local land values and cash rental rates, along with the factors that influence them. Whether you are a landlord or a tenant, you’ll learn more about the importance of having a written lease, what should be included in it and how to ensure it is equitable for both parties.

Participants will hear from keynote speakers who will be streamed live to dozens of workshop sites in all three states. Each site will also host local speakers and hands-on activities. Attendees will have the chance to ask questions of local extension experts while learning negotiating strategies and best practices to improve the landlord-tenant relationship.

You will leave with a greater understanding of conservation programs, including compliance requirements and voluntary programs that are available.

The workshop costs $50 per person and participants should plan to attend each session. This program will be offered in Danville and Terre Haute.  A virtual option (cost $75) is available for those unable to attend a workshop site, although in-person attendance is highly encouraged to better network with other attendees and interact with speakers. Registration is required by Jan. 13. Dinner will be provided to those participating at one of the host sites.
