The next Farmers & Ranchers College program will be held December 9, 2013 at the Opera House in Bruning, NE starting at 1:00 p.m. This program will feature Dr. David Kohl, Professor Emeritus with the Dept. of AAEC, VA TECH and will discuss the wild world of global and domestic economics with “black swans” or unusual events around every corner. Dr. Kohl will discuss the major game changers influencing the agriculture landscape along with a quick tour of global economics and how it is influencing land values, commodities, and input costs. Is agriculture in an asset or credit bubble? What can you do financially in this business environment to capitalize on the economic volatility? Dr. Kohl will give tips on management practices that will help you think globally but act locally in strategic and everyday decision-making.
