Plastina, Hart to present at 2023 Farm Transitions Conference

Drs. Plastina and Hart will present at The Beginning Farmer Center's 2023 Farm Transition Conference. This two-day seminar will equip farmers--whether they are entering, expanding, or exiting the business--to transition well, by educating attendees about opportunities, pitfalls to avoid, and tools required for a successful farm transition.

Hart and Plastina will both present on the first day of the conference, which will focus on the state of the farm economy and financial sector. Attendees will learn about the financial considerations necessary for beginning or expanding a farming business. Hart will present on the agricultural market outlook and Plastina will present on major financial decisions for farm transitions.

The second day of the conference will explore how relationships with family members and business partners impact the success of a farm business, and presenters will also review relevant tax, business, and estate law considerations and explain important planning tools and strategies.

Those attending in person will have opportunities for networking including an optional tour of Jack Trice Stadium (limited to 50 attendees). Both in person and online attendees may interact with speakers and ask questions throughout both days. All attendees will receive a Farm Transitions manual.
