Save the Date: The Penn State Extension Dairy Team and the Center for Dairy Excellence are hosting a workshop on Dairy Farm Transition Planning on Wednesday, March 21 at the Good Shepherd Church, Port Matilda. It will begin at 8:45 a.m. and conclude at 3:15 p.m.
Making plans to transition the family dairy business is an important step in ensuring the future for both the owner and for the next generation. The process is not a fast one, and is not especially easy, but careful and thoughtful planning will make for a much smoother transition.
The workshop is designed to help families navigate the process by considering the many steps that are involved in developing a concrete, realistic, viable plan to transfer ownership and management of a dairy business to the next generation.
Registration is $50 a person, including materials and lunch. For more information, visit https://extension.psu.edu/dairy-transition-workshop. Registration deadline is March 14, 2018. The workshop is open to anyone thinking about transitioning a dairy business, even if there are no immediate plans.
