Indiana Farm Bureau Workshop on Ag Contracts

By Andi Anderson

Registration is now open for Indiana Farm Bureau’s inaugural workshop on Understanding Agricultural Contracts and Leases. This virtual program will be held on Thursday, June 27, from 9 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. Eastern Time.

This new workshop focuses on the process of agricultural contracts and leases, providing attendees with a better understanding of contracting basics, types of agricultural production contracts, oral leases, and alternative energy leases. The goal is to help farmers and landlords navigate these often complex agreements.

“Working through a contract or lease can often be a cumbersome and overwhelming task for farmers,” said Mark Thornburg, INFB executive director of legal affairs. “This new workshop is designed to help farmers understand the difference between farmland leases and production contracts, as well as the importance of having a legally binding agreement. We hope they walk away feeling more educated and better prepared when dealing with a farmland transaction.”

Session topics and speakers include:

  • Agricultural Contracting Basics: Presented by Todd Janzen, Janzen Schroeder Ag Law.
  • Agricultural Production Contracts: Presented by Elizabeth Rumley, The National Agricultural Law Center.
  • Renewable Energy Contracts: Presented by Brianna Schroeder, Janzen Schroeder Ag Law.
  • Oral Leases of Farmland: Presented by Anthony Crowell, Gordon and Associates.

The program is aimed at farmers, landowners, and agricultural stakeholders who can benefit from broadening their understanding of contracts and leases. The workshop is free for INFB members and $50 for non-members. It is sponsored by the Indiana Agricultural Law Foundation, which promotes a better understanding of legal issues facing Indiana agriculture through educational programming, legal research, and support of precedent-setting litigation.

Registration for the event is required and can be completed at INFB Events through Tuesday, June 25. The program is approved for 3.3 CLE credits for attending attorneys.

Enhance your knowledge and ensure you are well-prepared to handle agricultural contracts and leases by attending this informative workshop. Register today!
