We are going to offer a program called Design Your Succession Plan on February 7 and 8th if there is interest. This is a program to find out what you want to do with your farm business and develop a succes- sion plan. This program will: discuss different options and the ramifications that might come with each, how to have a talk with the family about the plan or maybe have input into the plan, develop a plan, and imple- ment the plan. There are many, many ways to do this and each plan has to fit the family. The workshop has a registration fee of $125 for the first family member and covers meeting expenses, a resource binder, and workbook. Each additional family member is an extra $50. The last time it was offered we had couples and a father with one of his children participate. It was amazing to see the group move forward and dig into what they wanted and hoped for. We have really only a few simple rules. What happens in the meeting stays in the meotln/3, and everyone is treated with respect and valued. It worked well for us the last time. I don't yet have times, but if you or your family is interested I would love to know so we can find out the interest and see if we have enough to hold it. Many years ago my family saw how destructive a family fight over assets can be. My grandfather never spoke to his sister that I am aware of till the day he died and the fight occurred at the death of his mother and father many ycar prior. My siblings all agreed that we would not allow our generation to make that ugly mistake and made a plan for family peace and it is working. I share all of this with you so you can see how important this can be to keeping the family to- gether. Some of the greatest tragedies my father could imagine were that the farm would not continue, and that the family would be in conflict upon his passing. Dad, rest easy, I think we have avoided that.
