South Dakota Farmers Union will be holding a webinar on Succession Planning January 26th at 1 p.m. Central/12 p.m. Mountain time.
This webinar will be led by Poppy Davis, a business and policy adviser to agricultural and food and beverage enterprises, and to nonprofits and local governments. Davis has worked as a CPA, at the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), and in various non-profits.
During the webinar, Davis will guide participants through the Business Transition and Succession Readiness Self-Assessment.
This self-assessment tool can be used to evaluate structures and procedures currently in place to ensure a farm or ranch can continue during the short-term absence or permanent departure of the primary operator.
During the webinar, Davis will discuss how the assessment can help producers set goals and plan next steps to make their business resilient and ready for short or long-term change of management.
