1.23.11 – Continued Education
As participants in an ever-changing agricultural industry, we strive to continue educating ourselves on new and improved tools in the agronomic, business and technology fields. Two weeks ago, I traveled to Austin, Texas, to attend The Executive Program for Agricultural Producers (TEPAP). The two-year program focuses on “Managing personnel, evaluating new market opportunities, negotiating mergers and acquisitions, adapting to regulatory and technology changes” and provides tools to “teach you to predict global market shifts or take advantage of niche opportunities.”
Dennis and his wife are currently in Brazil on a two-week agricultural tour. They will see corn, soybeans, rice, cotton and other crops, visit one of the largest ethanol plants in Brazil, cruise the Amazon River, and visit the world’s largest soybean farmer.
