Farmers always face a long list of decisions, but several more are on tap for the year ahead. Some of those are related to drought and economic pressures, some are related to on aging farm population and the prospects of transitioning out of the profession.  

To assist with such things, the Meadowlark Extension District, involved with Kansas State University, has set a farm transition workshop for Nov. 17 in Sabetha, Kan. On the agenda, Dave Goeller, assistant director of the North Central Risk Management Education Center at the University of Nebraska, will address passing down the farm. Shon Robben, attorney with Arthur-Green in Manhattan, Kan. will present estate planning information.

The meeting begins at 9:30 a.m. and will adjourn around 4 p.m. The registration cost is $25 per person or there is a four-person rate of $80. Contact Jody Holthaus to register; her email is or call (785) 364-4125.
