Time is a scare commodity- especially for farmers and ranchers. Are you too busy to finish your estate and transition plan? What happens if your family’s farming or ranching operation is unable to transfer to the next generation?
Now is the time to start your transition! A meeting will be held to help families navigate the common landmines including legal, financial, and communication issues on Thursday, November 21st at Hartington, Nebraska.
Several respected Nebraska farmers and ranchers have agreed to share their experiences with generational transition. Learn from this panel of producers, who have experienced transitions, each in their own way. The panel will discuss what worked and what did not work for their operations and families.
An experienced attorney will also cover helpful legal tools to transition your farm or ranch to the next generation. Pamela Olsen is an experienced estate planning attorney in the areas of estate and long-term care planning. Olsen will discuss succession and transition planning issues for farms and ranches. Sufficient time will allow for questions from the audience.
Registration will begin at 9:30 am CT on Thursday, November 21 in Hartington, Nebraska. The workshop will be held from 10:00 am CT until 2:30 pm CT at the City Auditorium (basement meeting room). Call the Extension Office at 402-254-6821 or [email protected] to register. The registration fee is $15 and includes a meal. Meal count is appreciated one week prior, but walk-ins are welcome.
This meeting is sponsored by the Nebraska Grazing Lands Coalition and Nebraska Extension, with support from the Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education (SARE) program with funding from the NIFA-USDA.
