The 2021 Farm Management Institute is a free offering from the Farm Credit Knowledge Center, the educational arm of Farm Credit of the Virginias. Registered participants will hear Dr. David Kohl, professor emeritus of agricultural and applied economics at Virginia Tech, discuss the agriculture industry as it maneuvers razor-thin margins and increased volatility. Kohl will also discuss the state of trade agreements, interest rates, and coping strategies.

Participants will also receive access to tune into an exclusive Coffee Chat with Jay Hill on March 10, 2021, at 10 a.m. Hill is a farmer, public speaker, podcaster, and agricultural advocate. He will share how he got started in agriculture and established his operation, Hill Farms, based in Mesilla Park, New Mexico. He will also discuss his future goals and how he has used his wealth of experience in agriculture to advocate for the industry.

The events are open to all those interested in agriculture, to include young and beginning farmers, as well as students. There is no cost to attend.

Interested individuals are encouraged to learn more and register via Eventbrite. You can also contact the Knowledge Center team directly via email.
