Evaluating Your Estate Plan Materials Evaluation

You may have noticed the new category Transition and Estate Planning under Whole Farm on the Ag Decision Maker navigation bar. Fourteen new Information Files were added in February, March, and April. Development of the Information Files was funded by a grant from the North Central Risk Management Education Center. Feedback from you as a user of the materials is important to us. We will use your feedback to guide our decisions to update current materials and create new publications.
