Annie's Project Course on Farm Transition Planning

Nebraska Extension is excited to offer the Annie's Project course: "Managing for Today and Tomorrow: Farm Transition Planning" in O'Neill this June.  Annie's Project is designed to empower farm and ranch women to be better business partners and operators.  Creating a transition plan to make sure a farm continues as a productive business can be challenging.

The five-week course is designed especially for farm and ranch women to learn how to plan a successful farm transition.  During the course they will learn about business, estate, retirement, and succession planning from Nebraska Extension educators and area professionals. In addition to brief presentations, there will be discussions based on participant questions and follow-up activities for family members to complete at home.

Annie's Project will meet every Monday night from June 1 through June 29 from 6:30-9:30 p.m.  The cost is $75 per person.  Participants will receive handouts, an Annie's Project portfolio, and supper at each meeting.  Course size is limited and pre-registration is due by May 29.  Annie's Project is being funded by a grant from the USDA Risk Management Agency with support from Farm Credit Services of America
