The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) announces a unique training opportunity tailored to transitioning service members, veterans and military spouses. This free, two-day webinar provides a comprehensive overview of the opportunities, programs and services available to those interested in their journey in farming and ranching.

 Participants will explore the essentials required to start a career in farming and ranching and learn how to connect with USDA programs and services. They'll also begin to build a supportive network that will aid in the success of an agricultural operation.

 Preparedness and defense are critical to America’s food and agriculture sectors and to sustaining and growing rural America. That’s why USDA is looking to military veterans across the country to fill the roles that keep America’s food supply safe and secure, preserve and strengthen rural communities, and restore and conserve the environment. USDA wants to ensure that veterans looking to return home or start a new career on a farm or in a rural community have the tools and opportunities they need to succeed.

 The webinar will be recorded and shared on the USDA Veterans website.
