At Lewis Hybrids and Ursa Farmers Coop, we know that a true partnership is about more than just a bag of seed. It’s about carefully selecting the right products for your unique fields, along with timely planning advice and personal service to help maximize the profitability of their fields. One Field at a Time!
Our Series for Success workshops are just one of the ways we deliver on our Lewis Hybrids Year- Round Service Promise. The event kicks off with a VIP reception at 6:00pm Tuesday evening and continues with our Profit Planning workshop on Wednesday from 8:00am to 5:00pm. The workshop is a great opportunity to gain access to marketing and agronomic advice to build a strong profitability plan.
This year’s speaker line-up is the best yet! Dr. Ron Hanson, Professor of Agribusiness with the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, will present a two-part farm succession program that you won’t want to miss, while Al Kluis will provide his valuable market insights.
