Conference Name Teaching experiences, Farm Succession Education in Nebraska

Allan Vyhnalek


This presentation highlights the teaching of Farm/Ranch Succession and Transition. The importance of providing this education cannot be unstated. Census data shows that in most rural Nebraska counties, just over ½ of the land will trade hands in the next 10 years.
We will focus on both the failures and successes experienced from teaching Succession. Over time, we have used different approaches to teach Succession and have found the most success from an in-depth multi-session, multi-speaker approach. The results of end of series evaluations showed more in depth understanding of the risks associated with not having a plan and better follow-though for action steps that helps the land owner get started with their estate plan. The use of on-line education will also be presented and discussed.
