Sunday, December 2, 2018 • Fairmont Millennium, Chicago Hotel

1 p.m. – 5 p.m.     

Young farmers and ranchers take many different paths to make a career in agriculture a reality. But that road can contain multiple challenges and obstacles for inexperienced producers managing a complicated farming business.

Members of each generation come to the workplace with their own set of values, priorities, terminology and preferences for work/life balance. Many family farms now have five different cultural generations represented in their management and production team and knowing how each of these age groups operate can lead to great joy, but a lack of understanding may lead to misery. On top of these cultural differences, personality differences add another layer of difficulty to communication, decision-making, accountability, conflict resolution and production behaviors.
This fun and enlightening session will provide key insights and practical strategies that have enhanced the culture and improved the satisfaction, productivity and happiness of many family farms. You’ll meet new friends with similar challenges, broaden your network of like-minded professionals and glean specific strategies that can be applied immediately to your operation.
