Operational Continuity: planning for the unexpected in your operation
UC Cooperative Extension office, Auburn.
Reply to this e-mail if you want to come.
Many of you participated in the discussion last fall about how to keep your operation going when unexpected events happen. This is a workshop to help you strategize and develop a plan and get ideas from your peers. It is part of the Farm Business Planning course, but is open to other producers as well.
Placer-Nevada-South Sutter-North Sacramento Watershed Annual Meeting
at the MRF, 3033 Fiddyment Rd, Roseville
You will want to attend this meeting because PNSSNS is going out on its own as a Watershed Coalition, and that will affect you as a producer.
If you are a commercial farmer or rancher (you sell your crops/products), you need to belong to the Watershed Coalition. Please come and find out what is happening and voice your opinion.
