Dr. Angela Gloy is a Farm Business Planning Specialist in the
Department of Agricultural Economics. Her emphasis is farm family
succession planning, including retirement and estate planning issues
that accompany the transfer process. Beginning in 2011, Angela will
assume responsibility for teaching the undergraduate estate planning
course in the department.
Previously, Angela worked with the New York FarmNet and
FarmLink Programs at Cornell University. The New York program
business model serves as a springboard for her work with developing a
one-on-one farm family assistance program in Indiana. Efforts to
develop a state-wide Extension-based team that can facilitate
individual families’ succession planning process are a priority. She
works closely with the farm community on programming, developing
written planning tools for farmers, and promoting all of the planning
processes (e.g., business, marketing, estate, retirement, and
succession) relevant to farm businesses.
Angela’s work with farm families complements existing
departmental programs offered by farm business management faculty.
Prior to working on farm succession issues, Angela worked with the
Cornell Program on Dairy Markets and Policy, focusing primarily on
market development opportunities for the industry. Her M.S. and Ph.D.
degrees are from Texas A&M University and Purdue University,
