Farm Transition / Farm Estate Planning Meeting

ISU Extension and Outreach – Henry County is hosting a Farm Transition/Estate Planning Meeting on Tuesday, November 9 from 6:00 pm – 8:30pm at the Henry County Extension Office in Mt. Pleasant (127 North Main Street).

Transitioning the farm to the next generation is usually not conceived at the dinner table on the back of a napkin. It is a lengthy process that, done properly, can take several years to complete. This meeting is an introduction to farm estate planning, an exercise to get things started.

Charles Brown, ISU Extension and Outreach Farm Management Specialist, and Kitt Tovar Jensen, ISU Center for Agricultural Law & Taxation Legal Consultant, will discuss the top estate planning mistakes and the information your attorney or team will need to start preparing your estate plan.

Charles states, “Too many people procrastinate, thinking there is always tomorrow. Sometimes tomorrow comes sooner than expected.” We want everyone to be informed and able to make educated decisions.

This class is free for all participants but pre-registration is appreciated. Please contact the Henry County Extension Office at (319) 385-8126 to register by November 8th.
