2:00pm – 5:00pm
This Summit seeks to engage those who will assume the mantle of stewarding Texas’ natural resources – from the young farmers and ranchers who will inherit the farm or ranch from their parents to those who can influence the development of policies that incentivize private lands conservation. The objective is to examine those challenges facing future farmers and ranchers, and to highlight innovative programs and programs that will help ensure a vibrant future for Texas’ farmers and ranchers. A series of panel discussions will examine why farms and ranches break up, focus on innovative ways to make the property pay for itself, and what supporting organizations can do differently to help.
