Join Purdue Extension for an Upcoming Ag Law Program on March 15th

Last March, participants had a great time learning about legal issues related to land leasing, hunting rights, and fence law during our Legal Side of Agriculture program.  Therefore, we have invited Roger McEowen, professor of Agriculture Law and Taxation at Washburn University School of Law, back to Putnam County to share more of his knowledge of ag law issues.

This year, Roger McEowen will be talking about:

  • Structuring the farm business from to minimize self-employment and income tax;
  • Fences, boundaries and common farm lease issues;
  • Wills, trusts and asset ownership;
  • And more!

Professor McEowen conducts seminars annually across the United States for farmers, agricultural business professionals, lawyers, and other tax professionals.  He also conducts two radio programs each airing twice monthly.  In addition, his 2-minute radio program, “The Agricultural Law and Tax Report,” is heard daily by over 2 million listeners on farm radio stations from New York to California as well as SiriusXM 147. Roger can also be seen as a weekly guest on RFD-TV, where he discusses various agricultural law and tax topics.

The Legal Side of Agriculture program will be held on March 15 from 10:00 am - 12:00 pm at Ivy Tech Community College in Greencastle.  If you would like to participate in The Legal Side of Agriculture, please register here or call 765-653-8411.  There is a $20 per person fee to attend the program.  We do ask that you register by March 11th.  If you have any questions, concerns, or need reasonable accommodations, please contact 765-653-8411.
