Why is it hard for young adults to get into farming, and how can farmers cope with low farm prices? In this brief overview of agriculture in central Wisconsin, we’ll explore what is involved in crop and livestock production as well as the costs of producing human food. Farmer age and income levels will be shared as well as cost of production for a variety of farm products. Questions are encouraged and welcomed.
Time will be set aside for questions.
