Chris Nolt, the author of Financial Strategies for Selling a Farm or Ranch, provides an excellent overview of the issues involved in completing the successful sale of a ranch or farm, and of the tax traps that many unprepared property sellers fall into.

After a lifetime of hard work – sometimes over generations – when the time comes to sell their ranch or farm, many families don’t realize how high the stakes can be. Failure to plan ahead, or improper planning, can cost families much of the potential value vested in their properties.

Two of Nolt’s favorite vehicles for legally and efficiently minimizing capital gains taxes on the sale of agricultural properties are the 1031 Tax-Deferred Exchange and the Charitable Remainder Trust.

On this edition of RANCHCAST with LEM LEWIS, Chris spells out the advantages of both 1031 Tax-Deferred Exchanges and Charitable Remainder Trusts, and also the restrictions that apply to both.

Joining me in interviewing Chis is my friend and Texas real estate colleague Jay Whidbee.

If you’re thinking about selling your agricultural property, I would be honored to discuss how my colleagues and I may become your trusted ranch broker.

The real Old West – not the Hollywood version – was quite different than the one most of us have been taught. 

Even us ranchers and rural producers will be surprised by the intimate view and almost tactical sense of what it was really like in the 19th Century to be a cowboy that can be found in the book, Cattle Kingdom: The Hidden History of the Cowboy West.

On this edition of RANCHCAST with LEM LEWIS my guest is the author of Cattle Kingdom, Christopher Knowlton, a former FORTUNE magazine writer and London bureau chief. 

In his book, based on the style of meticulous reporting and research that you’d expect from a FORTUNE magazine writer, Chris chronicles the lasting impact on our nation today of the open range cattle era that arose in the wake of the Civil War and lasted until about 1892.

Cattle Kingdom draws on a treasure trove of historical documents, letters, diaries, and newspaper articles to bring the tales of the Old West to high-definition life.

Among the barons and would-be barons who Chris introduces us to are an English aristocrat, a French nobleman, and a future President of the United States – all of whom back in the late 19th Century were engaged in an investment mania that rivals any the world has witnessed before or since.

Riding shotgun with me as I interview Chris is award-winning financial journalist Dean Rotbart, who is host of his own popular podcast, Monday Morning Radio.

After living and working in Spain, where he noticed the climate and trees were similar to parts of Texas, Jim Henry wondered why no one in his native Texas was growing olives commercially. He thought Texas could be host to a thriving olive oil business and he set out to prove it.

It took Jim decades to prove his concept a success, and along the way, he encountered more than his share of obstacles. 

But Jim and his family have wrangled a thriving business from under-productive Texas ranchlands, using grit, stick-to-itiveness, and a belief in the unlimited ingenuity of rural producers. 

Agriculture specialists from the U.S. government, Texas, and around the country by the hundreds, even thousands, have visited Jim’s Texas Olive Ranch to learn his story first hand. All you need to do is make yourself comfortable and listen to this episode of RANCHCAST with Lem Lewis.

Salute!
