DairyCast Update for March 11, 2011, Handing It Over To The Next Generation

An interesting conversation is highlighted from our recent trip to the World Ag Expo.  We discuss succession planning with Caroline Berry, Caroline Berry Consulting, who says, "Estate planning and succession planning are not the same.  I frequently talk with someone who tells me their accountant has 'all that' under control."  You don't discuss succession planning with your accountant.  You discuss it with your successors.

Listen to this important conversation about planning for the future of your business with Caroline Berry.  The entire World Ag Expo panel video is also available on DairyCast.

And check out some of the other conversations from the Dairy Exhibit barn.  We'll continue to bring you conversations from around the dairy industry in coming weeks.  Let me know what you think about them with an email to Feedback@DairyCast.com.

Agriculture Telling its Story

  • Agvocacy 2.0: Adding a Human Voice to the Farm - At South by Southwest (aka SxSW) on March 13, Emily Zweber (dairy), Jeff Fowle (rancher), Chris Chinn (pork), and Zach Hunnicutt (crops) will share how farmers are using social and new media to bridge the gap between the 2% of the population who are farmers, and the remaining 98% of people who are not. The panel, moderated by Marla Schulman, are all family farmers who are driven and deeply committed to agriculture and want to share what they have with others.
  • Update: Global Status of Commercialized Biotech/GM Crops: 2010 - From Dr. Terry Etherton: The International Service for the Acquisition of Agri-biotech Applications (ISAAA) has released their annual report Global Status of Commercialized Biotech/GM Crops: 2010.  The report presents interesting and compelling information about the rapid global adoption of genetically modified (GM) crops.
  • Impacts of Rural Crime? - Crime does occur on the farm. How does this impact operations? What are the efforts to reduce rural crime? This Agchat discussion shares the issues and ideas on reducing this type of crime.
