Farmers throughout the nation struggle with issues of legacy, marketing to producers and consumers, and finding that necessary understanding of both their internal and external partners. A significant issue driving these disconnects lies in the generational differences within the family, the community and those farmers need to reach in order to both improve and move their product. Generations on the Farm is a part of the University of Illinois Extension´s dynamic Engaging Generations curriculum and has been well-received by SWC Districts, local and regional Women in Ag organizations and furthers the farmer´s knowledge of how to better plan and work together within the family as well as connecting more robustly with the markets, external partners and, equally important, the farm´s bottom line. This interactive session builds keen knowledge of what the audience needs and how to effectively--and quickly--put that knowledge to work.
