Succession planning should involve everyone within the family who may be affected and respects the roles they may play now and in the future. A strong succession plan will help protect your farm business and your family.

If you feel isolated or uncertain about the future and you are unsure how to improve the financial performance of your business, sharing the problem with others can help.

Many people and organisations are willing to offer help, sometimes free of charge. It is important to talk about the issue sooner rather than later. Do not delay to the point where your health suffers and you are having sleepless nights. A problem shared can be a problem halved.
