"Farm Business Transition: Where Do I Begin", presented by the Women in Ag Network, is an interactive program designed to help families understand how to start the transition planning conversation.

Participants will learn about different communications styles; transferring labor, income, management, and assets; retirement considerations for the senior generation; assessing an operation’s financial viability; and goal-setting. Through fun, hands on exercises, families will learn how to apply these concepts to their farm and begin their own transition and succession plan.
