Farmers and ranchers are invited to attend a FREE clinic. The clinics are one-on-one, not group sessions, and are confidential. The Farm Finance clinic gives you a chance to meet with an experienced Ag law attorney and Ag financial counselor. These clinic staff specialize in legal and financial issues related to farming and ranching, including financial planning, estate and transition planning, farm loan programs, debtor/creditor law, water rights, and other relevant matters. Here is an opportunity to obtain an experienced outside opinion on issues that may be affecting your farm or ranch. Bring your questions!
The FREE farm and ranch clinics will be in these locations:
Grand Island – Thursday, 7th
North Platte- Thursday, 14th
Fairbury – Thursday, 21st
Valentine – Tuesday, 26th
Norfolk – Wednesday, 27th
To sign up for a clinic or for more information, call Michelle at the Nebraska Farm Hotline: 1-800-464-0258.
