Ag Estate and Transition Planning Workshop


1:00 pm – 4:00 pm
Hamilton County Fairgrounds
310 3rd St
Aurora NE
Allan Vyhnalek,
Nebraska Extension in Hamilton County will host a transition and estate planning workshop for farmers and ranchers as part of the Ag Day program in Aurora from 1 to 4 p.m. on Jan. 4 at the Hamilton County Fairgrounds, 310 A St.

Allan Vyhnalek, an extension educator for farm and ranch transition and succession, will offer tools and strategies to effectively plan, start and complete estate plans, offer background on common mistakes during the process, and highlight essential considerations for creating and carrying out estate and succession plans.

Brandon Dirkschneider, managing principle at Insurance Design Management in Omaha, will also present during the workshop. Dirkschneider is a Certified Financial Planner and Certified Farm Transition Specialist.

“The common mistake is that most know that they need an estate plan, but never get around to putting a plan into a legal document,” Vyhnalek said. “Over several years, at the end of the workshop, the most common comment is that the participants wished that they had started learning the steps to start and complete a plan sooner.”

The workshop is free to attend and registration is not required. More information is available on the Hamilton County Extension website,
