The USDA estimates that 70% of U.S. farmland will change hands in the next twenty years. If a farm or ranch family business has not adequately planned for changes in ownership, it is more likely to go out of business, be absorbed into ever-larger farming neighbors, or be converted to non-farm uses. In these scenarios, impacts of farm entry and exit on rural communities, the environment, and the national economy can be significant.
Financial Management Specialist Dr. Larry Connatser and insurance specialist Mark Wynn will provide information and guidance on the decisions you can make today to help you plan and achievefinancial and personal goals for the future!
