The 2023 Farm Management Institutes are a free offering from the Farm Credit Knowledge Center in which participants at both locations will hear from Dr. David Kohl, Professor Emeritus of Virginia Tech. Participants at the West Virginia event will hear from Jesse Richardson of West Virginia University, and participants attending the Virginia event will hear from Jennifer Friedel of Virginia Tech.

Participants will have the opportunity to interact with Kohl as he discusses agriculture outlooks and suggested actions for producers, agribusinesses and students. Richardson and Friedel will address participants on the basics and updates of agricultural law.

Kyley Clevenger, Knowledge Center Director, shared, “We are excited to offer our annual Farm Management Institute this year with Dr. Dave Kohl, Jesse Richardson and Jennifer Friedel. The annual events continue to be an opportunity for agriculturalists to gain valuable insight from industry experts and to network with others in the ag community.”
