Business Succession Planning

THIS WEEK – First of a two-part series

THIS WEEK: Wednesday, December 5, 2018

12:00 p.m. – 1:00 p.m. CT

Getting started: what you need to know

One of the most intimidating obstacles family farms face-for both the family and the farm – is the passing of the business.

  • Statistics on farm transitions show:
  • 33% survive into second generation
  • only 12% survive into the third
  • a mere 4% survive into the fourth

So, how do you ensure a successful transition for your dairy? In this webinar, Nicole Bettinger will show how success can be defined in a variety of ways and discuss the difference between management and ownership succession. She’ll also outline obstacles to transferring either, and what you need to do to get started.

Continuing the farm succession and defining team roles

If you’re dreading the transition discussion or feeling stranded after the first steps of transition, this webinar will get you on the right track. Nicole will address critical areas in the succession-planning process for more harmony within the farm and the business. Though every situation is unique, yours is not the first of its kind. Gather tips and tricks that provide ways to move forward and align family members.

  • As part of our discussion, we’ll address the following areas:
  • Positioning the right people in the right roles
  • Motivating and engaging future generations
  • Working through conflicts to navigate common stresses and tensions
