Next Generation Succession: Take Over or Leave VDC Dairy Farm?


Ted Cruz was the heir apparent to VDC Dairy Farm. His father, Victor, founded the buffalo dairy farm as a social enterprise and insisted that the mission of the firm of helping dairy farmers should never be compromised even it if meant earning less profit.

Thus, he wondered if it was the best time to leave the business and start his own or to succeed his father and continue his legacy.
