Source: Landmark Services Cooperative news release

Landmark Services Cooperative will be hosting its annual farm management workshops Feb. 4 in Deforest, Wis., and Feb. 5 in Janesville, Wis.

"The 2013 farm management workshops will provide useful planning and production tools for agriculture producers of all scopes and sizes," says Kristi Lange, communications and events coordinator for Landmark Services Cooperative. "As this year's theme suggests - "Every farm has a history: Managing your farm for the future" - discussions will help producers combine lessons learned with new industry tools to plan for a successful year."

This year's Landmark farm management workshops will include industry-leading presentations on market outlooks, cutting-edge technology, agronomy, animal nutrition, grain and energy topics to help producers best plan for 2013.

The Feb. 4 workshop will be held at the Comfort Inn & Suites in Deforest, Wis. (5025 County Highway V, DeForest, WI 53532) and Feb. 5 at the Pontiac Convention Center in Janesville, Wis. (2809 Pontiac Drive, Janesville, WI 53545). Both sessions will run from 10:45 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

The 2013 keynote speaker will be Mike Pearson, host of the nationally syndicated show Market to Market. During his presentation titled "What's Driving Agriculture in the Year Ahead?" Pearson will provide a forecast for U.S. farm markets and global trends and discuss his experiences as a full-time lender and part-time farmer in south-central Iowa.

Attendees will also have the opportunity to choose two breakout sessions from four farm planning workshop options:

Great expectations in fueling your farm: What to expect in 2013 fuel markets and how to eliminate the unexpected. Presented by Phyllis Nystrom of CHS Hedging and Landmark Energy.

Turning up the heat for bigger yields: Hot topics for spring planting. Presented by Landmark Agronomy.

It's like money in the bank: Looking at your profit potential and managing inputs based on market outlooks to reap the rewards. Presented by Landmark Grain and Landmark Agronomy.

Bridging the generation gap: Succession planning from boomer to millennial. Presented by Liz Henry, Associate Director of Renk Agribusiness Institute and Landmark Animal Nutrition.
