Second Beginning Farmer And Rancher Symposium To Be Held In Brookings

BROOKINGS, S.D. (AP) — The South Dakota Department of Agriculture and South Dakota State University are hosting their second Beginning Farmer and Rancher Symposium in Brookings on Tuesday.

The free event at SDSU aims to answer many of the questions that come up as the next generation looks to become active in the ag industry, whether in production agriculture or supporting agribusiness operations.

Speakers include Barry Dunn, dean of the College of Agriculture and Biological Sciences at SDSU, state Agriculture Secretary Lucas Lentsch and keynote speaker Jolene Brown. Panels will cover the topics of finance and farm succession, and organizations with specific programs for young and beginning farmers will be on hand.

It runs from noon to 5 p.m. at the SDSU Student Union.
