Many, through years of hard work and planning build up land and wealth and the last thing they need is to lose it in a preventable lawsuit.

Tiffany Dowell Lashmet has served as an agricultural law specialist for Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service since 2013. Tiffany's work focuses on legal issues impacting Texas landowners and agricultural producers, including leases, water law, oil and gas law, pipeline easement negotiation, and landowner liability.  Tiffany is licensed to practice law in Texas and New Mexico. She grew up on her family's farm and ranch in northeastern New Mexico between Tucumcari and Logan.

On this edition of RANCHCAST with LEM LEWIS, Tiffany and I discuss leases, water law, fencing law issues, the Texas Agritourism Act and how to find the right attorney for the issue you are facing.

As you will hear, her experience and expertise far outweigh the amount of time that we had for just this interview.

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.

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.

My guest on this episode, Dr. Matt Wagner, is someone who I know enjoys the outdoors as much as I do.

Dr. Wagner is the definitive expert on wildlife conservation, range land management, and the Texas laws and policies governing them. I could invite him on every episode of this show and I know that I’d never grow tired of hearing what he has to say.

Dr. Wagner spent 28 years with the Wildlife Division of the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, most recently as Deputy Director. He is an adjunct faculty member of the Biology Department at Texas State University, where he teaches Wildlife Law and Policy. He also works under contract as a project administer with the Wildlife Management Institute, which has supported game management, biological diversity, and ecology since its founding in 1911.

As if that is not enough, Dr. Wagner has extensive experience working with and advising private landowners such as me. And Dr. Wagner is a believer in the important role that privately owned land plays in the well-being of wildlife and wildlife habitat.

On this edition of RANCHCAST with LEM LEWIS, Dr. Wagner and I will discuss two big issues impacting wildlife conservation in Texas.  One is the the loss of connection between people and the rural lifestyle, and two, the distribution and allocation of water.

Because Dr. Wagner is so knowledgeable, he and I also explore the impact of exotic wildlife and the efforts to manage them. We talk about statewide land stewardship programs and we even review efforts to privatized white tailed deer. And finally Dr. Wagner and I discuss the subject of chronic wasting disease in Texas.

If you own a ranch, are thinking about buying a ranch, or simply love the ranching lifestyle, you're going to want to hear what Dr. Matt Wagner has to say.
