Nationally it’s estimated that 16.5 percent of family farms and ranches survive to a third generation of ownership. Inadequate succession planning is one of the biggest threats facing most small businesses, including agriculture.
In an effort to bring light to this shared challenge, “Perennial Roots: Succession Stories” is an in-person event that’ll allow you to hear from three Montana ranch families well versed in the topic:
- Lee Family, Judith Gap
- Hammond Family, Malta
- Mannix Family, Helmville
Plan for a thought-provoking evening that’ll include dinner and tons of interactive conversation. Winnett’s event will run from 5-8:30 at the Petroleum County Community Center. CLICK HERE for more details and to register for the event.
Perennial Roots is a joint program of Ranchers Stewardship Alliance and Winnett ACES. This Succession Stories event is co-hosted by the Petroleum County Conservation District.
