My first thought on this is to distill the essence of Yeomans' Keyline
planning and make that a significant part of such a presentation.

Why a Keyline emphasis for farmers? Main reasons:

1) Keyline was originally developed by and for all sizes of broadscale
farmers and/or ranchers.  It talks their talk and walks their walk,
addresses their needs and concerns, while being insidiously
permaculturish througout.

2) The Yeomans are not at all shy about emphasizing economic gains from
applications of Keyline, whether it be from increased productivity,
enhancement of water resources, diversification of farm products, etc..
