Succession, Retirement, and Business Planning Workshop for Women

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.

The sessions start Tuesday, November 5th, and run consecutive Tuesdays for six weeks from 5:30 to 8:30 pm, with the last session on Tuesday, December 10th.  The workshop will be held at the Washington County Government Building Meeting Room, 806 Martinsburg Rd, Salem.  Registration is $75 per person and includes handouts, light refreshments and resource materials.  Your registration is due by October 25th.   Contact Danielle Walker at Purdue Extension - Washington County, 812-883-4601 or This email address is being protected from spambots.
