So, you’ve inherited a farm/ranch: Now what?

Anyone who owns farm or ranchland may want to participate in this seminar to learn information and education about that ownership. Learn management strategies for this asset by attending this seminar in North Platte. Neb., at the Lincoln Logan McPherson County Extension Center starting at 9:30 a.m., Dec, 19. You can use this 2½ hour workshop to learn about: Am I keeping the farm, or selling it? How do I manage a farm? If leasing, what are key lease provisions? What legal considerations do I have with this decision? And, how do we manage family communications and expectations when other family is involved?

“I am contacted monthly from citizens who have had their parents pass away, and now they are managing a farm for the first time in their lives,” said Allan Vyhnalek, Extension educator and event speaker. “They may have even grown up there, but haven’t been around for 30 or 40 years, and need to understand that farming practices and management concepts have changed,” he said.

Pre-registration is requested by prior to the event. Registration fee is $20 per person or $30 per couple. Contact Randy Saner, Nebraska Extension educator at (308) 532-2683 or e-mail to register.

The program is being provided by Vyhnalek and Jim Jansen, Extension educators from Nebraska Extension. They provide the farm land management education for eastern Nebraska.
