Labor Management on Small and Medium-Sized Farms Seminar Series

Zoom - Connection Information provided after registration

Labor is a critical issue for farmers seeking to scale-up production to supply emerging markets for their products and to meet business and family income goals. But in an environment of diminishing labor, escalating wages and narrow profit margins, finding, managing, training and retaining productive farm crews are proving to be an fluid puzzle with many moving parts.

This three-part, interactive seminar series will present highlights from recent research and extension projects focusing on labor management and decision-making on small and mid-sized produce and livestock farms across the US.

Sessions will feature information educators and technical consultants can use in your programs and work with farmer clients, and that researchers can use to inform future inquiry. Each session will also have time for questions and discussion, providing multiple opportunities to connect and share with other session attendees.

There is no fee to participate, but space is limited and advance registration is required.

Session details and registration information will be available at the Farm Labor Dashboard Events Page beginning the week of February 1, 2021.

The seminar series is being organized by the University of Vermont Extension in partnership with North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University, The Ohio State University, the University of New Hampshire Extension and the University of Wisconsin Center for Integrated Agricultural Systems with support from the National Institute of Food and Agriculture, USDA, under award 201869006-28096.

University of Vermont Extension, and U.S. Department of Agriculture, cooperating, offer education and employment to everyone without regard to race, color, national origin, gender, religion, age, disability, political beliefs, sexual orientation, and marital or familial status.

UVM Extension helps individuals and communities put research-based knowledge to work.
