2 min read

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. — The 91st annual Purdue University Farm Management Tour will take place July 17 at two farms in Randolph County, Indiana. Attendees will learn about innovative farm management strategies from local farm families, new technologies for improving efficiency and productivity, and ways to ensure a successful transition of farm operations to the next generation. The Master Farmer reception and panel discussion will be held after the tour to honor the 2024 Master Farmers.

Sponsored by the Center for Commercial Agriculture (CCA), Purdue Extension, Indiana Farm Bureau Insurance and Farm Credit Mid-America, the tour includes stops at Clements-Miller Farm in Lynn, Indiana, and Union Go Dairy at Willow’s Edge in Winchester, Indiana. Farms are chosen based on successful business management practices with an eye to the future. The Purdue College of Agriculture and Indiana Prairie Farmer sponsor the Indiana Master Farmer program.

“The tour not only highlights the importance of effective farm management but also celebrates the dedication and success of our farming community,” said James Mintert, director of the CCA and professor of agricultural economics. “By hearing about sound farm management strategies from successful farm families, attendees will take home effective ideas that they can implement into their own farm operation.” 

At both stops, operators will provide an overview of their farms. Host farmers will also share successful farm management tips, discuss how the management of their operations is changing in response to the agricultural economy and evolving family circumstances, and share reasons behind their recent innovations in production practices and adoption of new technology.

The tour and reception are free and open to the public, but registration is required by July 10. Register by visiting purdue.ag/farmtour or by calling 765-494-7004. The full agenda can be found on the CCA website.
