MSU Extension Webinar Series
Date: February 10, 2014 - March 24, 2014
Location: Webinar Series
A growing number of new farms are appearing across the state of Michigan. Many people starting these farm businesses, or considering it, are new to farming. Others have experience, but are getting started with a new agricultural enterprise. Either way, the 2014 MSU Extension Beginning Farmer Webinar Series will provide convenient, on-line learning opportunities on a variety of topics for the beginner.
The series will consist of eleven weekly webinars running from January 20 through early April. All of the webinars will begin at 7pm eastern time and last 1-2 hours. Each webinar is a separate program with registration available at http://msue.anr.msu.edu/ as the webinar date draws nearer. Click ‘search all events’ and scroll through the programs listed by date to find the webinar programs you are interested in. A $10 fee is charged for each program, and a high-speed internet connection is required. You will receive the URL for each program when you register.
