Iowa State University (ISU) Extension and Outreach hosts two seminars on passing farm management duties down to the next generation.

The course is entitled "Returning to the Farm Seminar" and the first edition took place Jan. 10 to 11. The course runs again Feb. 14 to 15, according to ISU's Extension and Outreach website.

“This is meant to be for farm families that are hoping to bring sons and daughters back to the operation. Every situation and family is different," Dave Baker, director of the Beginning Farmer Center with ISU Extension and Outreach, said

Participants in attendance will hear different viewpoints by people linked to farms who are fathers, mothers, brothers, sisters, wives, husbands and non-farming heirs. Many farm families presenting are facing similar challenges. Attendees will learn methods of communication through presentations and discussions.

“The program aims at reaching any family members, including students, parents and grandparents, farmers and non-farming heirs, and all successors of a particular operation,” the ISU Extension and Outreach website stated.
