Farm and ranch transfers take communication and time. Owners must let go of their land and other assets, and potentially hand over the reins to the farm or ranch business. Incoming producers must be ready to acquire and manage the assets and potentially take over the operation. This worksheet is meant to help you understand your own needs and the needs of the other party, identify tools and actions that can move the process forward, and document where you are in the process.
