Jolene Brown to speak at Watertown farm show

SDSU Extension is invites agriculture producers to attend a presentation given by Jolene Brown, nationally recognized speaker and farmer, during the 2016 Watertown Winter Farm Show Feb. 12 held at the Codington County Extension Complex and Park & Rec Fieldhouse (1910 West Kemp).

“Transitioning farm management to the next generation is a major issue facing families in South Dakota and across the country. All too often communication problems derail the best-laid plans and intentions,” explained Warren Rusche, SDSU Extension Cow/Calf Field Specialist. “Jolene Brown will be discussing these important topics.”

Speaking Schedule

10 a.m. (CST) Stop Fighting on the Way to the Funeral Home: It happens far too often in agriculture. Promises are spoken and broken and facts are assumed. Before long, the family is fighting on the way to the funeral. Jolene shares valuable points from real stories to help families avoid long costly fights.

1:30 p.m. (CST) Farmer Brown on Family Business: In a no-nonsense interactive question and answer session, Jolene will listen to stories, questions and concerns about family businesses, along with her insight from visiting with farm families across the country.

No pre-registration is required for this event. Brown’s presentation is sponsored by the Agriculture Committee of the Watertown Chamber of Commerce as part of the 2016 Watertown Winter Farm Show.
