Families Appreciate NDSU Extension Farm/Ranch Succession Help

(NDSU photo)
Donnybrook-area producer David Miller has six children, but only one, a son, is interested in taking over the small-grains farm. The 68-year-old Miller wants to retire this year, and he’d like to find a way to transfer the farm to his son while being fair to the rest of his children.

He’d worked with a farm transfer professional in Bismarck and an attorney in Minot, but their recommendations didn’t quite fit with what he had in mind. Then two years ago, he attended one of the North Dakota State University Extension Service’s Design Your Succession Plan (DYSP) workshops.

“I felt this was what I really needed,” he says. “It gave me a road map to do what I want to do.”
