Passing down the farm

By David G. Hallauer

Meadowlark Extension District Agent

Successful farm transitions don't happen by accident. Talk to anyone who has been able to keep family on the farm for multiple generations and they'll likely have a story (or two) about how challenging it can be, how much communication it takes, how planning is key.

Planning, in fact, will be the focus of our third of three Passing Down the Farm transition planning workshops scheduled for March 26, starting 7 p.m. It will be held at the Jefferson County 4-H Fairgrounds, 605 Ratz St. in Valley Falls.

Kansas Agricultural Mediation Services Staff Attorney Forrest Buhler will talk on "Keeping It In the Family-Successful Farm Transition," keying on things families can do to make sure they are able to make that transition as seamless and successful as possible. And with any topic like this, tax issues rear their head! Shon Robben, attorney with Arthur-Green LLP from Manhattan, will also be present. His presentation will focus on those estate planning and estate tax issues.

No RSVP is necessary. If you have questions, please contact a District Office.
