Seminar Overview

The United States economy remained strong through 2019, but certain segments of the agricultural industry are facing serious financial distress.  Chapter 12 farm bankruptcies surged in 2019—up more than 20 percent from 2018.  Hemp prices plunged, and dairies struggled with low milk prices, which started to recover in 2019.  The 2020 seminar will focus on economic and business issues, including the current state of Oregon’s agricultural economy, navigating financial distress, working with agricultural lenders, and business transition and succession planning.

Our program will include a timely recap of the 2020 legislative session, and a look ahead to the 2021 legislative session. This will include a special presentation from elected officials who focus on issues related to agriculture and natural resources.

Attendees will also hear updates regarding key areas of environmental law, including the Endangered Species Act, Clean Water Act, greenhouse gas regulation, pesticide regulation, and hemp/cannabis regulation.  Our program will also explore key issues in water supply and renewable energy development and conflicts that can emerge.

This conference is designed for producers and consultants, attorneys, and other professionals who serve agriculture industry clients. Come join a lively program featuring speakers who know Oregon agriculture!
