Are you making plans to come to Louisville, Kentucky for the National Farm Machinery Show? Is farm succession on the top of your mind? We’ve got the event for you! Announcing Jolene Brown and here crowd-packing seminar – Stop Fighting on the Way to the Funeral Home! This talk will cover everything you need to know and start planning for to help keep your family form fighting over Farm Succession. This insightful and fun-filled presentation highlights the stupid things families do that break up their business. We will discuss in-laws and out-laws, money expectations, daily communications and important meetings. From conversations to contracts, from assumptions to clarification, from complaints to celebrations, we will open eyes and save fighting on the way to the funeral home.

We wanted to share this note we received from one of our Fastline subscribers that embodies why we continue to publish our catalog – it’s not just about helping Farmers find the equipment they need, there’s more to Fastline than just the book.
I want to thank Fastline for filling a need in the life of my family. My husband was a longtime subscriber to your magazine. We have a five year old grandson, Eli. From the time he was old enough to sit on Papa’s lap they read the new magazine and Papa would tell him all about the different types of tractors, plows etc. At age 5 Eli can accurately name most farm equipment and he will correct you if you call it by the wrong name.

We believe the loss of our son and the sudden illness was more than he could mentally and physically bear. Eli saw his Papa almost every day of his life, as they lived nearby.
