SDSU Extension will host the Beginning Farmer and Rancher Symposium on November 15, 2017 in the South Dakota State University Student Union Volstroff Ballroom.

This is the 6th Annual Beginning Farmer and Rancher Symposium. The program is geared toward the next generation of farmers and ranchers and deals with the issues many families face when multiple generations are farming together. The Symposium begins at noon, and runs until 5. Understanding of SDSU class schedules, students are encouraged to come and go as their class schedules permit. There will be a keynote speaker, a finance panel, and a beginning producer panel throughout the day. Ice cream break and door prizes are also part of the Symposium.

While tools for transitioning the operation or estate planning are not part of the presentation, sponsors are on hand to provide the participants with ideas on who to contact to implement different transition and estate planning tools.
