Jason Ladman continues his discussion with Dewey Nelson about keeping transparent communication with your landlords this winter. Dig deeper into their concerns and perceptions surrounding ag, and openly share your own plans and goals for your farm's future, addressing honestly the current ag environment and its long-term positive outlook.
Jason points out that you and your landlord are both looking for a mutually beneficial relationship, so with open communication it's possible to look at creative options when the markets are tough. Perhaps you can approach an idea like a flex rent situation, or maybe a minimum rent arrangement with bonus schedule built in for good years.
