Iowa State University Extension and Outreach in Hancock and Kossuth Counties are hosting a Farmland Leasing Meeting on Monday, August 21, at 9:00 a.m. to address questions that landowners, tenants, or other interested individuals have about farmland leasing.
The meeting will be held at the Wesley Community Center located at 105 2nd St. S, Wesley and will be approximately 2 ½ hours in length. ISU Extension and Outreach Farm Business Management Specialist Kelvin Leibold will present the meeting.
