When sons or daughters return to the family farm or ranch, it often creates a set of financial and relationship issues families may not be prepared for. To help family members prepare for the transition, a two-part workshop “Planning the Return to the Farm/Ranch” is scheduled Jan. 4-7 and Part II is scheduled Feb. 18-19 in Fort Worth.

 

“This four-day workshop targets young people, their parents and in-laws, approximately one to two years prior to the time the young person would come into the business on a full-time basis,” says Danny Klinefelter, Texas Cooperative Extension economist.

 

Registration is $695 per family for up to four people. Registration for additional participants is $150 each. The fees cover materials, breaks and lunches during the program and three evening meals.

For registration forms and more information, call Dr. Klinefelter at 979-845-7171.
