BLOOMINGTON, Ill. — The Illinois Soybean Association (ISA) welcomes the Illinois Farm Bureau as a year-long sponsor of the Agribusiness Management Program (AMP).
AMP, funded by the ISA checkoff, is a resource for busy farm families and agribusiness professionals designed to provide farmers with go to advice and guidance on many agribusiness management topics from estate and succession planning to marketing to human resources, and much more.
Through AMP, ISA hopes farmers find peace of mind in their decision making, endurance in running their operations, excellence in the caliber of available resources, and most importantly, legacy – the ability to see their farming operations through to the next generation.
“We are excited to welcome the Illinois Farm Bureau as an AMP sponsor,” says Linda Kull, ISA Director of Ag Innovations. “Working together, we can better serve the family farm generations – the young folks joining the family business, the middle generation immersed in the farm’s daily activities, and the retiring generation, and continue to grow financial health, wealth and legacy for the family farm business.”
“Our members have expressed a desire for quality resources to help them navigate their finances and business management decisions. We are excited to partner with ISA to help provide these much-needed tools to help our Young Leaders and their families operate and grow successful businesses,” says Wayne Gehrke, Illinois Farm Bureau Young Leader Committee Chairman and farmer from Maple Park, Ill.
Be sure to join AMP for the 2021 Virtual Summer Seminar this July 20 and 27, featuring a dynamic line-up of agribusiness professionals. Those interested can register here: https://ilsoy.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_XwPB8aS3S9qVJYp_VX-uOw.
