Farm Seminar

Future of Farming – Recap of 2015 Water Street EDGE Event

Water Street AttendeesFarming is changing…how do you develop your Edge? Water Street EDGE farm seminar attendees at the Willmar, MN event on February 16th & 17, 2015, learned the skills needed to lead and manage their farm operations in the future. They were engaged in interactive educational sessions, participated in 1-on-1 conversations, and took advantage of networking opportunities.

We value farming as a business and understand how vital education is for future success and advancing technologies. Therefore, we were honored to have the opportunity to co-sponsor the Water Street Edge event with Water Street Solutions. We wanted to ensure that farm businesses and families in south-central Minnesota and surrounding areas had this educational opportunity available to them.

For those of you who were unable to attend, we wanted to share some seminar highlights with you, and what better way to do that than by using technology. Social media is other technology that is fast becoming a part of the future of farming.

Water Street EDGE Tweets

During the event we used the #WaterStreetEDGE to tweet important take-home tidbits from each speaker and session. Here’s some highlights.

“Who’s Hiding The Humor?” Event Coming on Dec. 2nd!

Jolene BrownIt’s our pleasure to invite you, our patrons, to join us for a fun evening at Max’s Grill in Olivia on Tuesday, December 2nd at 6pm to show our appreciation.

Jolene Brown, professional speaker, Author and Family Business Consultant, will be our keynote speaker. Jolene encourages, teaches, and celebrates the people of agriculture who feed, clothe and fuel the world.

Jolene spoke at a farm business seminar that we co-sponsored earlier this year. We were so impressed with her extensive knowledge, speaking ability and popularity with the audience, that it was a unanimous decision to invite her to speak at this event. Jolene will be presenting again at the Water Street Edge Farm Business Seminar on Feb. 16th-17th, 2015 in Willmar, MN.

“Who’s Hiding the Humor?”

Here is a short description of Jolene’s presentation:

All folks have a sense of humor; it’s just that some folks have a bad one! They haven’t learned that the benefits of a positive sense of humor extend to better health, understanding of rural issues, and positive farm family relationships. How long has it been since you’ve really laughed and celebrated who you are and what you do? We’ll do both as we answer the question “Who’s Hiding the Humor?”

Join Us!

We hope you can join us for an evening of great company, tasty food, and top notch entertainment! A formal invitation will follow in the mail.

The entire Corn Capital Innovations Team looks forward to thanking you in person at this event!
