OFB presents farm succession workshop

The Oregon Farm Bureau Women’s Advisory Council invites the Oregon agriculture community to attend an upcoming workshop, “Planning for the Four Seasons of a Farm’s Legacy: birth, growth, retirement, succession”

Set for Nov. 3-4 in Salem, the event will focus on successful succession planning, an issue that impacts almost every farming and ranching family.

On Nov. 4, keynote speaker Rod Sharp, an agriculture economist with Colorado State University Extension Service, will present “A Lasting Legacy.” He will focus on practical, easy-to-use strategies to help families plan for a smooth transition of the farm from one generation to the next. Sharp has shared “A Lasting Legacy” with agriculture audiences in multiple states, earning rave reviews along the way.

Farm Bureau leaders and special guests will present additional topics, including how to share agriculture’s story with the public, effective grassroots activism through Farm Bureau, an overview of OLIS (the Oregon Legislative Information System), and essential updates to CPR training.

The $5-per-day fee includes meals. Attendees have the option of attending one or both days of the workshop.
