“So You’ve Inherited a Farm … Now What?” Workshops underway

The University of Nebraska-Lincoln’s Center for Agricultural Profitability will present a series of workshop in central and eastern Nebraska for those planning and involved in farmland succession who want to learn more about the best strategies for managing and owning this asset and how it may impact the transition plan.

“So You’ve Inherited a Farm … Now What?” will cover Nebraska land industry topics for farms and ranches. Those include evaluating current trends in land values and cash rents, strategies for successful land transitions, lease provisions, legal considerations and managing communication and expectations among family members. Creating and adjusting estate plans will also be covered.

“We hear all the time from people who engaged in various stages of transitioning land involved in a farm or ranch,” said Jim Jansen, an agricultural economist with Nebraska Extension. “The dynamics surrounding succession differ for each operation, and this workshop provides the best management concepts and strategies for an effective transition.”

The program is free to attend, and lunch or refreshments will be provided at each location. Pre-registration is requested by one day prior to each workshop.
