Michael and Rebecca Werbela received a Dairy Forward grant from American Farmland Trust and Chobani for farm transfer and succession planning for their third-generation dairy farm. The Werbelas will work with an attorney, Steve Walker, at Walker Law Firm, P.C. to develop an estate plan for two generations of the family, including the preparation of living wills, financial power of attorneys, health care proxies, and last wills and testaments. The Werbelas also plan to create a Limited Liability Company to help facilitate the transfer of the farm to the next generation, allowing Michael and Rebecca to take ownership of the cows and equipment while they purchase the land separately. Steve Walker has extensive experience working with farm families on farm transfer and succession and a background in dairy farming and will provide counselling to the family to transfer the farm assets from Michael’s father to Michael and Rebecca, who aim to stay competitive in the evolving dairy industry.
