By Jim Isleib,
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 in a variety of topics for the beginner.
The series kicks off with a set of weekly webinars running from Jan. 20 through early April. Each program begins at 7 p.m. eastern time and will 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 the events button at the top of the site 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.
