So You've Inherited a Farm, Now What?

If you've inherited or received farmland and want to learn more about the best strategies for managing this asset, learn what it means to own agricultural land today at one of several Nebraska Extension programs being hosted this fall across the state. Pre-Regristration is requested by two days prior to the event. Advance registration is requested to ensure enough handouts for the program. This program is free because of funding from the North Central Extension Risk Management Education Center and USDA National Institute of Food and Agriculture under award number 2015-49200-24226. For more information or assistance, please contact Allan Vyhnalek, Extension educator, farm succession, at 402-472-1771 or e-mail, or contact Jim Jansen, Extension economist for northeast Nebraska at 402-261-7572 or e-mail
