The extension office will offer workshops on inheritance and farm management
LINCOLN – The University of Nebraska-Lincoln Farm Profitability Center will present a workshop on Grand Island for those who have inherited or received farmland and want to learn more about the best strategies for managing and owning this asset.
“So, you inherited a farm… Now what?” will be held from 10:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. on August 17 at Hall County Extension, College Park, 3180 W. Highway 34. Extension educators will present topics related to what it means to own farmland today, including assessing whether it keep or sell a farm, manage a farm, lease arrangements, legal considerations, and manage communication and expectations between family members.
The creation or adjustment of estate plans will also be covered. “We hear all the time about people who have lost their parents and are now running a farm for the first time in their life,” Vyhnalek said. “Maybe they grew up there but haven’t been there for a while and want to understand modern farming and management concepts, which this workshop will cover.”
The program is free and lunch will be provided by Peoples Company in Omaha. Pre-registration is requested by August 15 by calling Nebraska Extension in Hall County at 308-385-5088.
