  • Passing It On – An Estate Planning Resource Guide for Wyoming’s Farmers and Ranchers. This free resource provides information of use to all people considering the future of their estate, not just those in agriculture. Drawing on insights from mediators and other experts, it tells you how to initiate a family conversation on the legacy you and others will leave.
