Part Two on Succession Planning with OSU's Shannon Ferrell - Don't Forget to Make Updates

Putting a solid plan in place to pass a farming operation on to the next generation can be a major undertaking for a family, but itís not enough. Shannon Ferrell, associate professor of ag economics at OSU, says itís important to also keep the plan updated over the years.

ďAnytime youíve added someone to the family tree or someone has left - whether thatís birth, death, divorce, marriage - thatís an important time to say hey the stakeholders have changed, letís go back and take a look at the plan,Ē he says.

Ferrell says changes in the operation could also warrant updates to the succession plan.

ďIf weíve added a new enterprise or a big, new piece of land or something significant has changed for the business, letís see how that fits in there,Ē he says.

Even if nothing has changed within the family or business, Ferrell says itís still a good idea to look back at the plan every few years to make sure none of the tax issues or laws have changed that might have an impact on the plan.

Listen to Ferrell talk more about the considerations in succession planning during the latest Beef Buzz.
