As you approach Ag in Motion on Highway 16 West, a tent city comes into view, as if sprouted from the soil, the peaks of its pure white canopies pointing the way.

In one of those tents, on 5th Street just north of Saskatchewan Drive, speaker Jolene Brown holds forth on succession planning. She’s dynamic and funny. A succession planning expert, ‘Farmer Brown’ lives in the middle of corn and soybean country in Iowa, and has spoken all over North America and around the world.
