ALEXANDRIA — Landlords, farmers and agri-business professionals will hear about fair farmland rental rates during a free meeting hosted by the University of Minnesota Extension.

The talk will take place twice, at 9:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m., on Tuesday, Nov. 15, at the Douglas County Public Works meeting room, 526 Willow Drive.

Farmland rental rates are the largest input cost the farmer has, and negotiating a fair rental agreement that satisfies both landowner and farmer is a challenge.

Attendees will have access to examples, fact sheets and worksheets, as well as local historic and projected farmland rental rate trends, current farmland values and sales, input costs, current corn and soybean prices, affordable rent information, rate of return to the landlord at current market values and flexible rental agreements.

The meeting room is at the far end of the building. Drivers should pass administration parking until they see signs for meeting room parking. Meetings will last about two hours. There is no pre-registration or cost to attend. In the event of stormy weather, contact the Farm Information Line at 800-232-9077.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
