Succession, Retirement, and Business Planning Workshop for Women
Farm and ranch women are decision makers. The decisions made during succession, business, estate, and retirement planning are combined to form a transition plan. A transition plan helps ensure a farm or ranch continues as productive agricultural business.
Farm and ranch women are generating a cultural tide in American agriculture that is moving management, assets and opportunities to a new wave of beginning farmers across the country. Purdue Extension - Washington County is hosting a program for women to sharpen their skills and plan for a transition. Other partners include Purdue Extension - Harrison County, Purdue Women in Agriculture Team and Farm Credit Mid-America. The program has also been funded partially through a beginning farmer and rancher development program of the National Institute of Food and Agriculture.
Managing for Today and Tomorrow focuses on the management processes and decisions needed to make successful transitions. The workshop includes hands-on activities, interaction with local professionals and up-to-date resources. Participants of all ages and experience levels will practice tasks to increase confidence in setting goals, nurturing effective family conversations and defining the farm legacy. The six-session program includes a 260 page workbook.
