Creating a transition plan to make sure a farm continues as a productive business can be challenging.
Managing for Today and Tomorrow, an LSU Ag Center course for farm women, can help that transition though. The class is offered Thursday, July 27, and Friday, July 28, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day at the LSU AgCenter Meeting Room at 210 Turner Road in Port Allen.
Farm women can learn how to plan a successful farm transition in a two-day course in cooperation with the national Annie’s Project – Education for Farm Women. The program, a new Annie’s Project course, has been scheduled for this July in Port Allen, Louisiana as a two-day workshop.
The cost is $50 per person and includes a workbook with fact sheets, hands-on activities and
Lunch is included each day.
Farm women will learn about business, estate, retirement and succession planning from specialists and area professionals. In addition to brief presentations, there will be discussions based on participant
questions and follow-up activities for family members to complete at home.
“We’re happy to bring this valuable program to West Baton Rouge, said Deborah Cross-Young, State Coordinator with Annie’s Project Louisiana, “This farm transition course is an opportunity for farm women to meet with others who share similar issues and concerns. We limit the size of the class to make it comfortable for everyone to speak up and get questions answered.”
Annie’s Project, an agricultural risk management education program for women, has successfully reached more than 9,000 farm and ranch women in 30 states. “This new Farm Transition program emphasizes the role women play in helping transfer farms from one generation to the next,” said Cross-Young.
Managing for Today and Tomorrow will empower women to take ownership of the future of their farms.”
