The fifth annual “Successful Farmer Series,” will be held weekly starting Jan. 10 and ending Feb. 14 at the Lancaster Extension Education Center, 444 Cherrycreek Road, Lincoln.

Each topic will feature two to three speakers from the University of Nebraska–Lincoln or related agencies.

This is also a great opportunity to visit with other producers in the area.
