In February, 93 people in the Agriculture Industry assembled to kick-off a new initiative called AgSave$ to bring personal finance education such as estate planning, succession planning, and protecting assets, to farmers, ranchers and agriculture producers in Florida. The AgSave$ program is a cooperation between Agriculture and Family and Consumer Sciences Faculty in the University of Florida IFAS Extension Northwest District. This program is being sponsored by Farm Credit of Northwest Florida and Consumer Federation of America and America Saves made possible by Bank of America Charitable Foundation.
The AgSaves Workshop registration fee for all four classes is $55.00 and includes topics such as:
– Preparing for Retirement and Other Financial Goals
– How to manage and reduce your debt
– Securing your Family’s and Your Farm’s Future through Succession Planning

These workshops will be offered in county extension offices in Northwest Florida, including Calhoun County. The program begins on March 24, 2015 and pre-registration by March 17th is required.
