Program helps beginning farmers

Getting started in dairying can be a difficult task at any time, but with low milk prices, it can be downright daunting.

Land Link, an organization started by the Center for Rural Affairs in Walthill, Neb., matches beginning farmers with retiring farmers and landowners. Land Link believes a beginning producer can buy livestock and lock in the cost of grain less expensively if he is working with an established producer.

In addition to the Land Link program, the Center for Rural Affairs offers a manual on whole farm planning. It covers environmental issues, marketing, financial planning and production.

For more information about Land Link, or the whole farm planning manual, contact Joy Johnson at (402) 846?5428. The Web site is: www.cfra.org.
