The average age of farmers and landowners is the oldest in history, and it’s estimated we will see a record amount of wealth change hands over the next 10 to 15 years. We believe now, more than ever, it is important to prepare and ensure your current estate and farm succession plan complements the long-term goals for you and your family farm.

Please join me LIVE at one of the farm transition workshops I will be presenting in mid-December. There will also be an online virtual option:

  • December 7 – Dodgeville, Wis.

  • December 12 – Freeport, Ill.

  • December 13 – Princeton, Ill.

  • December 14 – Macomb, Ill.

  • December 15 – Virtual Zoom

Registration for the live workshops will begin at 8:30 a.m. with light refreshments. The program will run from 9:00-11:30 a.m. with the following topics:

  • Avoid the Common Pitfalls in your Estate Plan

  • The 5 W’s of Farmland & Farm Business Succession

  • How-to Strategies for Entering, Expanding, & Exiting the Business.

There is no cost to attend these thanks to the sponsors.

Please register for your workshop of choice, here, or by scanning the QR code below. An email will be sent to the virtual attendees at a later date with a link to the Zoom session.
