Workshop offers advice about family farming

A family farm succession workshop featuring Dr. Ron Hanson from the University of Nebraska will be held Tuesday, February 16. The all-day workshop will begin at 8:30 a.m. at the Prairie Inn in Morris.

This seminar will identify and emphasize the "human" elements often overlooked in a family farming operation. Dr. Hanson will share real-life farm-ranch family experiences that can help others resolve or avoid these situations.

The goal is to help family members stay on good terms and avoid "people" problems while farming together. Topics covered will include family communication and decision making, family financial planning and family estate planning.

For questions, registration and cost, call Deb Koehntop at (320) 759-2416 or Greg at (320) 424-0343. This seminar is sponsored by Farm Bureau of Stevens and Pope County.
