The Most Important Farm Input
Apr 30, 2021 Season 1 Episode 50
DTN/Progressive Farmer

After nearly one full year of podcast, here at Field Posts we’re taking some time to reflect on some of the many critical and exciting stories we’ve covered in the past 49 episodes. We’ve talked markets, weather, crops, diseases, laws, politics, livestock, equipment, and about the lived experiences of farmers in a time of tremendous upheaval. What we haven’t spent as much time diving into is another set of critical inputs to any farm business-- the relational and interpersonal skills that keep us connected to one another and that help farm businesses remain resilient. Today, Lance Woodbury of K Coe Isom will dive into some of the key relationship skills that help prepare younger growers, including self-awareness, negotiation, crucial conversations, conflict resolution, and the value of mentors.
