The 2nd Ag Matters Speakers Series Panel Discussion for Yavapai County Farm Bureau took place on July 17, 2019. Discussion focused on business development for those who new to agriculture production and those more experienced. The panel consisted of Dalton Dobson from Farm Credit West, Harriet Mann from Farm Service Agency, Julie Murphree from Arizona Farm Bureau and Jeri Denniston from the Small Business Center at Yavapai College. Each gave insight on how to obtain loans, marketing and business plans. The event took place at Mortimer Farms in Dewey, Arizona and dinner primarily came from ingredients straight from the farm. We hoped to encourage beginning farmers and ranchers in their endeavors by receiving tips on how to succeed in their operational plans. Yavapai County Farm Bureau's Policy Development Meeting followed the panel discussion.
Thanks to all who attended the Ag Matters Speaker Series on business development and Policy Development Meeting. Farm Bureau appreciates all of you and will continue to hear your concerns and work on your behalf.
