Farm Management Tour Overview
The Department of Agricultural Economics at Purdue University has organized an annual Indiana Farm Management Tour every year since the early 1930s. The tour visits farms that have demonstrated highly successful farm business management practices or have unique perspectives on farm business management. The purpose of the tour is to encourage and develop a high level of management knowledge and skill among Hoosier farmers.
Host farmers will share their keys to successful farm management and explain how the management of their operations is changing in response to the vibrant agricultural economy and the changing circumstances of their families. They will also share their reasons for their recent innovations in production practices and adoption of new technology. This is an opportunity to ask questions of and learn from the experiences of some of the best farm business managers in Indiana.
Who should attend?
Farmers, agribusiness professionals and others providing products and services to farmers, agricultural educators and students, farm landowners, and anyone interested in farm management and family farm businesses.
