Panel Discussion: Farming in New Weather Reality

January 9 @ 1:50 pm - 4:00 pm

| Free

The session will open with a panel of experienced Maine crop and livestock farmers who will discuss how changes in weather patterns have affected their operation, how they have adjusted, and needs for coping better in the future. Ellen Mallory, a University of Maine School of Food and Agriculture associate professor and UMaine Extension sustainable agriculture specialist, will moderate the session.

All farmers are encouraged to share their own experiences, strategies, and needs during an open discussion. Service providers and policymakers will describe what resources are currently available in Maine to help farmers manage issues related to weather.
