Two-day Farm Transition Workshop to take place in Stillwater

STILLWATER, Okla. - An intensive two-day workshop will take place on the Oklahoma State University campus in Stillwater Aug. 15-16. The workshop is geared toward family farmers and ranchers interested in learning how to develop and implement a successful farm transition.

Following a successful series of five one-day workshops held throughout Oklahoma in March and April, the two-day event will include in-depth coverage of business and personal goal-setting, financial analysis, human resources, family communications, estate planning, estate taxes and retirement planning. Expert panels featuring attorneys, tax professionals and mediators also will be available to help families who choose to have their first transition meeting at the event.

“Our first workshop series focused on helping participants ask the right questions about the future of their farms,” said Shannon Ferrell, associate professor of agricultural economics at OSU. “This two-day event will help participants take serious steps forward in their planning process, and will give them a chance to have ‘the talk’ with their families about how to move forward.”

The workshop series is hosted by Oklahoma Cooperative Extension Service with funding from the USDA Risk Management Agency through the Southern Risk Management Education Center. The workshops also are sponsored by Farm Credit Associations of Oklahoma and the Samuel Roberts Noble Foundation. The cost for attendees is $50 for a family of four. Additional registrations are $10 per person. Registration covers all materials and programs, with lunch and breaks on both days provided by the Farm Credit Associations of Oklahoma.

To register, contact Kareta Casey at 405-744-9836, or via email at kareta.casey@okstate.edu.  Registration closes Aug.1 at 5 p.m.
