Whether they’re the principal operator, inheritor of farm ground or married into a farm family, some women find themselves in a position that requires knowledge of managing a farm operation. Many have little background experience or training to do so.
Johnson County K-State Research and Extension’s educational session, The Farmer’s Daughter: A Women in Agriculture Series continues, Dec. 18, from 9 a.m. – noon at the extension office, 11811 S. Sunset Drive in Olathe. This session will focus on farm succession planning and estate planning.
Forrest Buhler, an attorney with the Kansas Agricultural Mediation Service will be the speaker. Forrest is a trained succession planning facilitator and will help educate participants on the transfer of ownership, management and leadership from one generation to another.
The series is designed to provide information and training on a wide variety of farm management topics designed specifically for farm women. Women with any level of experience in farm management or with any degree of farm involvement are invited to attend.
This program is free, but advance registration is required by contacting Rick Miller, county agriculture agent, at 913-715-7000. This series is made possible with support from Johnson County Farm Bureau, K-State Research and Extension, and Frontier Farm Credit. Details are available here.
