Kyley Clevenger, Knowledge Center Director, shared, “Lifelong learning and networking is a key component to success in any business, but especially agriculture. I would encourage those of all ages and size and scope of operation to attend this year's Farm Management Institute, as the information and connections are crucial to any farm business. This annual events are a highlight for our Association, so don't miss out on the opportunity to join us.”
