About this Event

Michigan Farm Bureau on Jan. 28 will launch a four-part virtual series aimed at sharing the latest information and relevant resources to support agricultural employers. Free to Farm Bureau members and industry partners, the weekly lunchtime sessions from noon to 1 p.m. are every Thursday, Jan. 28, through Feb. 18. The series may be extended. We encourage employers from all agricultural segments and of any size to listen in to these series.
