With: Matt Stockton, Agricultural Economics Specialist, Nebraska Extension
Join us for a review of results and findings from this year’s UNL TAPS competitions and gain insight on new ideas, techniques, practices and technology for managing an agricultural production business.
The University of Nebraska-Lincoln’s TAPS program (Testing Ag Performance Solutions) provides opportunities for competitors to benchmark farm management skills, both business and production.
TAPS uniquely creates an environment where participants have freedom and incentives to explore farm management topics specific to their needs and wants. We have seen producers change their thinking and practices as they grow in their abilities to manage their operation, increase in their understanding of the relationship of the business and production sides of farming. All the TAPS components, competition, experiential learning, pier to pier interaction and social reinforcement result in deep reflective moments and openness to new thoughts and ideas and solidification of know how.
TAPS is now open to enrollment for the coming 2022 growing season and people are welcome to come to are annual banquet and celebration of another successful season of learning.
