The annual Perry-Spencer Crop Day program will be held Tuesday, March 15 at 6:00 PM CDT at the St. Meinrad Community Center. Crop Day is a joint effort between Purdue Extension and Soil & Water Conservation Districts in Perry and Spencer Counties.
University of Kentucky and Purdue University Extension Services have teamed up to once again offer the Ohio Valley Small Farm Conference to help current, beginning, and prospective small farmers in the Tri-state plan, improve, and diversify operations.
If something happened tomorrow to a key member of your farm or family business, are you prepared? Purdue Extension's Women in Agriculture team has developed a resource to help farm families and small business owners keep important information handy in the event they need it in an emergency.
Transferring the farm business to the next generation of operators is one of the most challenging issues a family can face. And oftentimes, getting the process started is the most difficult part.
The economic climate of agriculture in 2016 and beyond will pose new and unique challenges to producers across Indiana. Farmers are invited to join Purdue specialists at one of three workshops as they discuss management and decision-making strategies that can be used to endure economic challenges and maintain financial stability.
If you were unable to enroll by January 15 and wish to participate in Indiana 4-H in 2016, simply contact your county Purdue Extension Office to complete a paper enroll.
