Kansas:

`Keeping the Family Farming´ Workshops Set for January in Beloit, Hiawatha

AgFax.Com - Your Online Ag News Source

MANHATTAN, Kansas (November 12, 2009) - Kansas State University and the Kansas Farm Analyst
Program will offer Keeping the Family Farming Workshops for families
who are working through the benefits and challenges of incorporating
family members and others into a farm operation or passing the family
farm business from one generation to the next.

"Farm transition planning is difficult in the best circumstances,"
said LaVell Winsor, agricultural economist with the Kansas Farm
Analyst Program. "Often it takes a lot of time for families to figure
out the best route for their family and operation. With the average
age of farmers and ranchers in their upper 50s, it's critical that
agriculture families be making plans now."

The Kansas Farm Analyst Program is part of K-State Research and
Extension.

To get the full benefit of the training, Winsor said, participants
should attend as a family. They will receive hands-on guidance that
will be relevant to their own farming operation on such topics as:
Where Do You Stand Financially?; Communicating Effectively With Those
You Live and Work With; Planning for Retirement; Estate Planning;
Your Business´ Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats
(SWOT); Putting Your Game Plan into Action; Determine Your Current
Financial Position; and others.

Each workshop will be two days, Winsor said. The Beloit sessions will
be Jan. 9 and 23, 2010 at the Zion Lutheran Church at 621 N. Mill St.
The Hiawatha sessions will be Jan. 16 and 30, 2010 at the Fisher
Community Center, 201 E. Iowa St.

The first session at both locations will begin with registration at 9
a.m. and the program starting at 9:30 a.m. Lunch will be provided and
the day will wrap up at 5:30 p.m.

The second session at both locations begins at 9:30 a.m. and goes
until 7:30 p.m. Lunch and supper will be provided.

The early registration fee (paid by Dec. 15) for Kansas families is
$250 per family of four, with additional family members at $75 each.
Out-of-state families also are welcome to participate, Winsor said.
The early fee (paid by Dec. 15) for out-of-state families is $325 per
family of four, with additional participants at $100 each.
Registrations received after Dec. 15 will be assessed an extra $75
per family unit.
