Farm business transitions: Where do I begin?

Betty Berning

"Farm Business Transition: Where Do I Begin", presented by the Women in Ag Network, is an interactive program designed to help families understand how to start the transition planning conversation. Participants will learn about different communications styles; transferring labor, income, management, and assets; retirement considerations for the senior generation; assessing an operation’s financial viability; and goal-setting. Through fun, hands on exercises, families will learn how to apply these concepts to their farm and begin their own transition and succession plan.

The program will be held June 6, 2017 at the Halstad Legion Recreation Center (580 2nd Avenue West, Halstad, MN 56548). The event begins with registration at 9:00 a.m., includes lunch and concludes at 3:30 p.m. The cost for the program is $20; payment can be made day of event via cash or check.
