Are you stuck trying to handle farming production problem? Every farmer can likely think of a problem they’ve had, in search of a solution. Sometimes it requires a new piece welded on; sometimes a different animal flow; sometimes a totally fresh approach. Our panel of experienced farmers will share particular challenges, solutions, and a-ha! moments as they’ve worked through a wide range of on-farm challenges. Attendees are welcome to just come listen, offer additional ideas, or throw out new dilemmas to solve! Ridge Shinn, Colin Kennard and Brandon Bless will be our farmer speakers focused on fence, water and infrastructure topics.
