Putting pen to paper for a farm business succession plan can alleviate worries for individuals currently running the business and lessen the burden on those faced with handling business matters following the loss of a loved one. 

Knowing the first steps to take in making a succession plan can be daunting, if not overwhelming – especially for those that are not armed with a legal degree. 

That is why Texas Corn Producers is teaming up with Tiffany Dowell Lashmet, an agricultural law specialist with Texas A&M AgriLife Extension, to assist Texas farmers in knowing where to start in gathering the information they need before they even step foot in a lawyer’s office to draft a will. 

The first installment of this series will be:

  • Feb. 10, 2021 | El Campo, Texas
    El Campo Civic Center in Duson Meeting Room 
  • Feb. 11, 2021 | Robstown, Texas
    Richard M Borchard Fair Grounds in Ballroom B

Registration for both events opens at 8:30 a.m. and the program will begin at 9 a.m. Additional presentations of the series will be held across the state throughout the year. 

In just a few steps, farmers can feel prepared in developing a succession plan that leaves a clear path of direction for the future of the legacy they’ve built over decades. 

The Successful Succession program is a collaboration of Texas Corn Producers and Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service made possible in part by a grant from the Southern Extension Risk Management Education Center.
