Succession Planning without a Successor

Navigating succession can be difficult and even more so if you do not have anyone to take over the business. When it comes to farmers without an immediate successor, few options exist - the farm can be sold, let as a farm or letting land on cropping or grazing licences. However, many producers still want to play an active part in the farm whilst taking a step back. So, what options are there?

Two routes in particular are becoming increasingly common: Contract farming and share farming.

This dairy insight publication explores the options and how it may work for you and your business.
