February 1, 2018

Lincoln, Neb. — Those who have inherited farmland or may do so in the future, are encouraged to register for an upcoming two-part online seminar series “So You’ve Inherited a Farm, Now What?” offered by Nebraska Extension.

The seminar will cover topics such as: keeping or selling a farm; farm management; lease provisions; legal considerations; and managing family communication issues and expectations.

“Inheriting a farm usually brings a number of questions, especially for those who are one or two generations removed from the operation” said Jim Jansen, extension economist. “These seminars will help demystify the process of selling or managing the farm.”

The free seminars will be held Feb. 19 and Feb. 26, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.

Pre-registration is requested. For more information and to register visit,
