What is a fair and profitable farm rental agreement?

Landlords, farmers and agri-business professionals are invited to attend a free meeting to discuss fair, profitable farm rental contracts.

This University of Minnesota Extension-sponsored meeting will be held Friday, November 22 from 2 to 4 p.m. at the Douglas County Public Works meeting room at 526 Willow Drive in Alexandria. Pre-registration is not necessary. 

Negotiating a fair rental agreement that satisfies the landowner and the farmer is a challenge, according to David Bau, extension educator in ag business management.

Bau will provide several ways to determine a fair farm land rental rate for both parties.

The meetings are designed to assist landowners, farmers and agri-business professionals with financial issues related to farmland rental rates, ownership, management, leasing agreements and related issues.

For more information, contact the University of Minnesota Extension Douglas County Office at (320) 762-3890.
