Lunch will be provided, and the event will run until 2:30 PM at the Froehlke Auditorium at the Marshfield Clinic in Marshfield, WI. All are welcome to attend.
“We are very excited about this year’s summit,” said Hannah Gerbitz, Outreach Specialist for AgrAbility. “With our new grant in place, as well as some new staff members, we are ready to take our summit to new heights. Our team looks forward to providing our farmers with the opportunity to network, think about their financial future, and learn more about the agriculture topics that are affecting farmers today.”
The daylong program gives participants an opportunity to network and learn about resources available through AgrAbility and other Wisconsin programs. Topics to be covered include pain management, finances and farm transitions, Easter Seals and AgrAbility farm technology, and hot topics in agriculture. These presentations and discussions will be led by farmers and agriculture industry members. New this year will be a visit from Alice in Dairyland.
