Oregon is in the midst of a family farm succession wave with some estimates predicting as much as 64% of farmland to change ownership in the next 20 years. While farm families may plan to transition ownership of the business to the next generation, it may be less clear who will actually manage the business operations.
As the ag sector continues to become more complex, the importance of non-family managers will increase. In some cases the next generation may not have the skills or desire needed to lead an agricultural enterprise. In others non-family managers may work side-by-side with, or mentor, family members, complementing their knowledge and skills. This workshop will explore how families can best work together to address the question of non-family management, how the family dynamic and identity could be affected by outside leadership, and how and when to assess the next generation's capabilities.
