Women in Ag Network to Host Farm Transition Workshop

Are you thinking about transitioning your farm and interested in learning more about the transition planning process?

Farm Business Transition: Where Do I Begin is presented by the University of Minnesota Extension's Women in Ag Network (WAGN). The WAGN is a collaboration of Extension with USDA's Minnesota Farm Service Agency.

  • When: December 14, 2017 - Registration at 9:30 AM; Program 9:45 AM to 2:30 PM with lunch.
  • Where: St. Cloud Regional Extension Office, 3601 18th St. S., Suite #113, St. Cloud, MN 56301.
  • Cost: $20 (includes lunch and resource booklet)
  • Register: z.umn.edu/WAGN-Transition
Deadline to register is December 6, 2017
This interactive program is designed for farm family members of any age or generation and focuses on how to start the transition planning conversation. Participants will learn about different communication styles; transfer of labor, income, management and assets; retirement considerations for the senior generation; assessment of an operation's financial viability; and goal-setting. Through hands-on exercises, families will learn how to apply these concepts to their farm and begin their own transition plan. The cost for the program is $20, which includes lunch and a resource booklet. Register by December 6th!
