By Taylor Dill, extension educator at The Ohio State University
Many farms are lost in the modern farming community due to unsuccessful transition from one generation to the next. Farm transition is a difficult task to plan financially and can be even more difficult to discuss among family members. It is estimated that more than half of farmers and ranchers do not have an estate plan. Estate planning is crucial for a successful transition to the next generation, while keeping the family together. Ohio State Extension has many farm management specialists to help with this endeavor.
Join OSU Extension Darke County in hosting David Marrison, Coshocton County Extension Educator and Robert Moore OSU Farm Law Attorney for a Planning for the Future of Your Farm event! David and Robert will cover; develop goals for estate and succession, plan for transition of control, plan for contingencies, communication and conflict during farm transfer, select lawyer, legal tools and strategies, develop your team and put energy order in your affairs. David and Robert are well known in the extension business and their mission is to save family farms from collapse due to poor transition planning.
The event will take place on July 29e at the Anderson Ethanol Plant Meeting Room, 5728 Sebring Warner Rd. #E, Greenville beginning at 8:30 a.m. and ending at 4 p.m. The cost of the course is $45 covering two family members and course materials.
