Husker Harvest Days to hold succession planning sessions

Husker Harvest Days being held from September 15th – 17th

As closely knit a group as farm families are, there are certain subjects that need to be treated differently – succession planning is one of them.

In an effort to engage farmers and ranchers in succession planning discussions, Nebraska Department of Agriculture Director Greg Ibach is inviting attendees of Husker Harvest Days to take part in the “Cultivate Your Legacy” sessions.

“This is a topic that we hear about from our constituents on a regular basis,” said Ibach.“Transitioning a farm or ranch from one generation to the next can have many complexities and requires detailed planning to make it successful. Our goal is to provide the information necessary to get the planning process started.”

The sessions, scheduled to be held twice daily at 11:45am and 2:30pm will feature Joe Hawbaker, an agriculture law attorney with Legal Aid of Nebraska, and University of Nebraska Educator Dave Goeller; both of whom have extensive experience helping farm families transition their operations.

Join the conversation and tell us if you’re thinking about attending these sessions. What are some tips about succession planning that other farmers should know?
