Advanced Business Planning with Richard Wiswall
Sunday, February 24 - Monday, February 25

Find out your farm’s profit centers- which parts of your farm make the most money and which may actually lose money. Learn about efficient farm planning and analysis, efficient farm office management, key financial statements, employee management, and financial tips for success. Set aside the day to finally work on these, and other important farm business concerns.

The workshop will address:

  • Planning for Profit: a step by step guide to increase your net profit
  • Making a Profit on YOUR farm: what is making money and what isn’t
  • Your marketing strategies
  • The Efficient Farm Office: humorous skits and demos outline best practices
  • Key farm financial statements: what they are, why they are important, and how they relate to each other
  • Employee management
  • Quick business fixes

The all day workshop will be part lecture, part group work sessions and part demonstration. The target audience is any farmer (beginner to experienced, young or old) who feels the need to sharpen their pencil and focus a little more on the business side of farming.
