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 at the Best Western Mill Creek Inn in Salem.
The event will focus on succession planning, an issue that impacts almost every farming and ranching family. The $5-per-day fee includes meals. Attendees have the option of attending one or both days of the workshop.
On Nov. 4, keynote speaker Rod Sharp, an agriculture economist with Colorado State University Extension Service, will present “A Lasting Legacy,” focusing on practical, easy-to-use strategies to help families plan for a smooth transition of the farm from one generation to the next.
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 the Oregon Legislative Information System and essential updates to CPR training.
