Farm Succession Workshop

Allan Vyhnalek's workshop, "Preparing for the Future: Farm/Ranch Transition and Succession," is available as 12 segments, broken down into separate topics like retirement, communication with family, how to plan and more. The first two segments are below and all 12 are available here.

So You've Inherited a Farm, Now What?

If you have inherited farmland or may do so in the future, this webinar is for you “So You’ve Inherited a Farm, Now What?”

Jim Jansen and Allan Vyhnalek cover considerations for land including management, transition and succession planning.  

The webinars answer questions such as, Should I keep the farm or sell it? How do I manage a farm? If leasing, what are key lease provisions? What legal considerations do I have with this decision? And how do we manage family communications and expectations when other family is involved?
