Nebraska Extension has scheduled estate planning workshops for farmers and ranchers in Wayne and Seward in March.

The in-person workshop will be presented by Allan Vyhnalek, an extension educator for farm and ranch transition and succession. He will offer tools and strategies to effectively plan, start and complete estate plans, offer background on common mistakes during the process and highlight essential considerations for creating and carrying out estate and succession plans. 

“The common mistake is that most know that they need an estate plan, but never get around to putting a plan into a legal document,” Vyhnalek said. “Over several years, at the end of the workshop, the most common comment is that the participants wished that they had started learning the steps to start and complete a plan sooner.”

It will be hosted in Wayne from 1 to 3 p.m. on March 3 at the Volunteer Fire Department, 510 Tomar Drive. Registration is requested by March 2 at 402-375-3310.

The workshop in Seward will be held from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. on March 8 at the office of Nebraska Extension in Seward County, 322 S. 14th St. Registration is requested by March 7 at 402-643-2981.
