Finding harmony through understanding leads the discussion of Friday’s keynote speaker Elaine Froese. Her session, “Grassroots of Healthy Family Relationships,” is open to all generations. Froese is a go-to expert for farm families who want better communication and conflict resolution to secure a successful farm transition. Her superpower is helping families find harmony through understanding. Her expertise is to discuss the Undiscussabull™ - the bull in the middle of the farm family that no one wants to talk about.
