The Veteran Farmers Project is funded by the Agriculture Department's Risk Management Agency and the Center for Rural Affairs in Nebraska. It's also supported by a coalition of farm groups.
On Tuesday, veterans interested in farming can tour several farms near Milford to learn about organic grains, direct marketing of cattle and poultry and how a commercial cattle and grain farm operates.
On Friday, another workshop will be held in Scottsbluff. There will also be tours of a farm raising organic produce and grain and a goat dairy where cheese is made.
Interested veterans should contact the Center for Rural Affairs at (402) 617-7946.
