Farm Management Seminar
The 2016 Farm Management Seminar, a five-session workshop series, will focus on the financial education that goes along with operating a successful farming operation.
Although the farm management school targets those who are new to agricultural fields, any farmer, producer or agriculture-related industry person is welcome to attend. The goal of the program is to help young and beginning farmers learn how to become financially savvy and how to make their agricultural operations successful.
The farm management school runs January 7, 14, 21, 28 and February 4 for two hours each night.
Topics will include:
- What Is the Mission of Your Farming Operation?
- Making Record Keeping Do More Than the Tax Return
- Developing Your Balance Sheet
- Basics of Finance
- Developing Your Business Plan
- Farm Transition Planning
- Ag Law 101
The farm management seminar is sponsored by Farm Credit Mid-America and Farmers National Bank. Registration for the workshop series is $50 and includes a light supper and program materials. See the attached flier for registration information.
