About the Conference

 Montana's Next Generation Conference will be held January 26 and 27, 2018 in Shelby, Montana. The conference will feature one day of business planning resources for  the farm or ranch, and one day of production and financial management  workshops.
Friday, January 26, will feature Elaine Froese and Amanda Radke. Elaine is a farm family coach and succession planner who offers  farm  families straight talk about how to have courageous conversations  on issues that seem impossible to resolve when running a family business  operation. Amanda Radke, BEEF editor and family farmer from South  Dakota, will bring a great keynote evening address talking about some  very tangible things they have done on their operation to allow the next  generation to succeed financially and how succession has worked for  them.
Elaine is providing a free copy of her e-book Building Your  Farm Legacy for all those who register early by January 12. Don't miss this great opportunity to move your family business forward!
Saturday, January 27, will provide producers with 36 different  workshop options covering crops and livestock production, financial  management, record keeping, leasing, succession planning, and much more.  Saturday's workshops will provide pertinent information for both the  beginning and experienced producer, and counts as FSA Borrower Training  as well.
Hosted by the Glacier and Toole County Farm Service Agency,  local MSU Extension, Marias River Livestock Association, Native American   Community Development Corporation and the Front Range Counties Farm  Bureau, this comprehensive conference of succession planning and  production workshops is one not to miss.
Friday's events will be held at the Shelby Civic Center (669 Park Avenue) and Saturday's events will be at the Shelby High School  (1001 Valley St.) in Shelby. This convenient location is just an hour and a half from both Great Falls and Havre, and has Amtrak service  as well. Located at the crossroads of Highway 2 and I-15, Shelby makes a  great host site!
