With crop prices expected to remain where they are through 2016, managing a farm business effectively is as important as it has ever been. Not only is it crucial for the current generation, but many farmers wish for their legacy to continue for several generations to come. Making sure the farm heirs inherit a sustainable farm business starts with the current operators.
