Virtual Landlord-tenant Cash Rent, Ag Budgeting Workshops Scheduled

Nebraska Extension' Farm and Ranch Management team will hold a series of virtual landlord-tenant cash rent workshops in lieu of in-person meetings that were scheduled across the state through February. They will be geared toward current and future landlords and tenants and will cover current trends in cash rental rates and land values, lease provisions, crop and grazing land considerations and current university crop budget information.

The workshops, titled Ag Land Leasing, Budgeting and Management for 2021, will be led by extension land specialists Allan Vyhnalek, Austin Duerfeldt, Glennis McClure and Jim Jansen, who conduct research and outreach in land management, crop budgets, farm and ranch succession, communication and negotiations. They will address common agricultural landlord and tenant topics, including equitable rental rates, managing and adjusting farmland leases, landlord-tenant communication, pasture leasing and other land management considerations.

Three of the workshops will be intended for audiences in specific regions of the state. A virtual meeting that was previously slated to be held for landlords and tenants in Lancaster County will continue as scheduled.

Following the landlord-tenant workshop on each date, an agricultural budgeting workshop will be held from 1:30 to 3 p.m. Information will be presented on using University of Nebraska-Lincoln crop budgets to calculate cost of production. The new online Agricultural Budget Calculator program will also be demonstrated. These workshops will be conducted on the same meeting link as the morning session.

Paper copies of the program curriculum will be mailed to participants who provide their address during registration, which should be completed at least one week prior to the workshop to ensure receipt by the time of the workshop.
