I Farm Management Minute By Shawn Meyer, Farm Business Management Instructor, Ridgewa: ter College The increasing age of the American farmer makes transferring the farm to the next generation a more frequent challenge to be met. Transferring the farm is a complex and detailed process, but with the willingness by all parties and some help from professionals it can be a positive experience. The fol- lowing are some ideas to help you get started in the process. One of the biggest hurdles can be simply finding out what other people are thinking. Sit down at the kitchen table with all parties involved in the process to discover their thoughts, ideas, and expectations for the farm. This must include all members of the family even siblings who are not ac- tively involved in the farming opera- tion. A third impartial party such as a farm management instructor may be very beneficial to lead this process and keep it on track. Once all parties know each other's thoughts, ideas, and ex- pectations you can begin developing a plan. Each transfer is different and not each one will have the same structure. Some of the tools commonly used are contract for deeds, life insurance, gift- ing from the older generation, and fi- nancing from an outside source. The plan needs to work financially for everybody involved. Always ask the following questions: Can the older generation live on the money that is coming in? What if living costs go up for the older "generation? Can the younger generation cash flow this plan? What about the non farming children? What is the best business structure for us? Make sure to include your accountant and lawyer as the process continues. A farm manage- ment instructor can help answer all these questions for you and guide you through the process that may seem overwhelming on your own.. debt on and off ~the farm is responsible Because it is a time consuming it will work for both generations. If process it is never too early to start you would like more information or planning even if your children are help with your farm transfer needs, young. The bottom line is if all parties please contact an FBM instructor in are willing to make it happen and the your area, Area Health Services I
