Farm Succession Planning Seminar Scheduled
Families need to be creative when developing a plan for passing down the family farm. The Farm Bureau and COUNTRY Financial want to help.  On Thursday, December 7th, Dr. Hanson, retired Agribusiness Professor from the University of Nebraska, has been invited to present two separate but identical programs in our area.  During his presentations he will identify and discuss family relations and business ownership succession issues that often confront farm families. 
Sessions will include: Sharing Ownership/Management Control with the next Generation, Overcoming the family challenges to farm succession planning for success and Mapping out a business succession plan for your farm, Keeping your farm in the family for the next generation putting together a succession plan.
Both sessions will be filled with valuable tools. Don’t miss this important informational workshop for your family farm!  Plan to join us for one of these seminars:
            Breakfast Session- 7:30 – 11:30 at Lavender Crest Winery, Colona
            Dinner Session- 5:30 – 9:30 at Wise Guys, Princeton
