Anecdotal evidence suggests one in four farming families in the UK are not speaking to a member of their family because they have fallen out over succession issues.

Communication and planning are vital for making the succession process easier. Working with NFYFC, succession expert Sian Bushell has shared her advice on how to manage the succession process to help young people have the confidence to start the conversation.

Please watch the video 'Succession..We really need to talk’ and download the accompanying advice sheet to help you with succession issues. This film was recorded by NFYFC with support from Defra and AHDB to highlight the importance of succession planning.

There is also a Succession Workshop available – a series of short video clips – where Sian talks through the issues of succession and how to tackle them.
