AWARDSTexas A&M AgriLife Extension Superior Service - Emerging Issues Team 2020Southern Extension Risk Management Education Center - Project of Excellence 2020REVIEWS- Best workshop I've seen in 20 years. Excellent program. Excellent speakers. Excellent information.- As a Continuing Legal Education Course (CLE), this course is worth $395 to $500. One of the most informative events I have ever attended. Just excellent in every way.- The best extension publication and program I've seen in 30+ years involved with agriculture in Texas.- The landowner workshop you presented at Lubbock Tuesday was outstanding (as I leaned over to tell you after lunch). I have attended MANY workshops, conferences, presentations, etc. in my 31 years as an educator in both public and higher education. This was probably the single best and most useful one I have ever attended. Also, as one who writes textbook chapters, articles, etc., I have to acknowledge the manual you put together. There was no doubt an immense time investment in putting together an attractive, useful, information-rich resource such as this. It is "technical enough," but not over-the-top for the layperson land owner. Kudos to you on an outstanding publication!- Wonderful workshop! I've always wanted to farm and just recently (4-5 years ago) realized I didn't have to grow up on a farm to farm as an adult. This workshop was very informative and helps me feel assured that as I move forward and make decisions on buying land, what to produce, and other legal issues regarding farming, I will be able to run a successful agriculture business. Thank you!- Just returned from this seminar (in Crockett) and wanted you to know that it was probably one of the most informative I have ever attended. Enjoyed the speakers tremendously..., particularly Tiffany.- This program is worth a $150+ registration fee!This course comes with the online version of the handbook.
