Landlord-Tenant Cash Rent Workshop Planned

 Current and future landowners and tenants should make plans to attend the Landlord-Tenant Cash Rent Workshop by the University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension.  This workshop will cover current trends in cash rental rates and land values, lease provisions, crop and grazing land considerations, and current UNL crop budget information.

This meeting will be held in St. Paul at the St. Paul Library Conference Room, 1301 Howard Ave on August, 19, 2019.  Registration is at 9:30 a.m. the program is starting 10:00 am.  The meeting registration and lunch will be sponsored by Homestead Bank, St. Paul.  Please register with the Howard County Extension office by calling 308-754-5422 by August 12, 2019. 

Nebraska Extension land specialists Allan Vyhnalek, Austin Duerfeldt, Glennis McClure, and Jim Jansen conduct research and outreach in land management, crop budgets, communications and negotiations. They will address common agricultural landlord and tenant questions:  What does an equitable rental rate look like for my land? How do I manage a farmland lease? How could the lease be adjusted for recent flood damage?  What should I expect for communications between the landlord and tenant?  What are key pasture leasing considerations including stocking rates? Who is responsible for cedar tree removal from grazing land? What does it cost to raise crops on my ground?

“Landlords and tenants often face land management questions and decisions.” said Allan Vyhnalek, Extension Educator and workshop presenter. “Both may be concerned with equitable treatment and it can be difficult to keep up with the current trends. This workshop will provide participants with up-to-date information and discuss current issues to assist with decision making.
