Upcoming Seminar Will Teach Farmers Farm Succession

12/25/17 – An upcoming seminar will teach farmers how they can transition their farm from one generation to the next. The Dodge County UW-Extension will begin a three-part series on farm succession next month. The first meeting will be held on January 11 begging at 9:30am and ends at 3:30pm. It will be located at the Golf Club at Camelot on Highway 67 in Lomira. Amanda Young with the Dodge County UW-Extension says they have partnered with Fond du Lac, Washington, and Ozaukee Counties to bring together the best possible seminar for farmers. She says the January 11 program will discuss if farmers are bringing in enough sustainable money, as well as choosing the right business entities for farmers. The last two half-day meetings will be held on February 8 and 15, also at the Golf Club at Camelot. Items that will be covered include estate planning and how retirement planning can be impacted by farm succession. Young says interested individuals can either attend one or all of the meetings. There is a $30 dollar per person fee or $50 dollars per couple for the January 11 seminar. Both meetings in February will cost $20 dollars per person or $35 per couple. The fee includes meals, speaker fees, and a resource guide for each individual. Young says registrations are due one week prior to the workshop.
