We'll also focus on safety and loss mitigation in confinement buildings.
Farm Insurance 201

Attendees will also take a look at emerging agritainment topics including pumpkin patches, u-pick operations, farmers markets (especially in regards to altering products such as selling strawberry jam instead of just strawberries), and farm structures being used for wedding receptions and special events.
