Transferring one’s farm business is a complex process that requires input and assistance from qualified professionals. This in-depth presentation describes how to get the right people on your team to ensure a successful farm business transfer to the next generation.

Attendees will:

  • Develop an understanding of human resource risk and how it may be managed during the farm business transfer process.
  • Expand their knowledge of common farm business succession pitfalls and identify solutions to be utilized in their personal succession plans.
  • Receive information on additional resources to utilize during the business succession planning process.
