Creating a transition plan to make sure a farm continues as a productive business can be challenging. Farm women can learn how to plan a successful farm transition in a four-session course offered by University of Illinois Extension, in cooperation with Annie’s Project – Education for Farm Women. “Managing for Today and Tomorrow: Farm Transition Planning” has been scheduled for this March at the DeKalb County Farm Bureau building in Sycamore on Tuesday evenings from 5:30-8:30; March 7 through March 28.
Farm women will learn about business planning, estate planning, retirement planning, and succession planning from Extension educators and other area professionals in business, finance, and law. In addition to brief presentations, there will be discussions based on participant questions and follow-up activities for family members. The cost is $60 per person, which includes a 300-page workbook with fact sheets, hands-on activities, and presentations. Light refreshments will be provided. Course size is limited, so please register soon.
