Today, you’re successfully farming together as a family, and you want those successes to continue as the farm business transitions to the next generation.
Then you should plan to attend a two-day workshop, "Farming into the Next Generation," on Feb. 12-13 on the campus of Purdue University in West Lafayette, Ind. The workshop will focus on family relationships, communication, the role of key non-family employees and building a strong management team for the future. It will not address estate planning, asset transfer and tax management.
Workshop instructors include Bob Milligan, a senior consultant with Dairy Strategies LLC and professor emeritus at Cornell University, and Bernie Erven, professor emeritus of agricultural economics at Ohio State University.
The workshop is sponsored by the Purdue University Center for Commercial Agriculture.
