The Coalition to Support Iowa’s Farmers (CSIF) is hosting a one-day educational conference Sept. 9 at the Iowa State University’s Scheman Building in Ames, IA.

“Farming for the Future – A Vision for Your Family’s Farm” will provide individuals and families with timely information that is needed to grow their livestock farm successfully and responsibly.

This year’s conference will feature a livestock, crop and feed outlook, as well as a rules and regulations update.

Panels of agriculture finance experts and young farmers will discuss various strategies used to return to the farm.
