This seminar is designed for those that are interested in the current land prices in Marathon County.  Attorney Steve Lipowski from Ruder Ware will first discuss contracts and equipment leases. In modern agriculture, financing equipment acquisitions through equipment leases is a fact of life for many.  Understanding how equipment leases in particular and contracts more generally operate and affect you will help your farm make better decisions.  This presentation will introduce common provisions and describe how farms can look to protect themselves from the beginning of a contract relationship.

Afterwards, Simon Jette-Nantel from UW-River Falls and UW-Extension will present on the trends of land prices in Marathon County and factors that affect these prices.
