Dakota College at Bottineau (DCB) enrolls farmers and ranchers throughout the north central and western part of North Dakota to work one-on-one with their North Dakota Farm Management Education (NDFME) instructors. Enrollees do not sit in a traditional classroom setting. Since no two farm and ranch operations are the same, working one-on-one allows direction on a per-case basis. DCB – NDFME Instructors work with enrollees’ personal financial information to help understand and improve effectiveness in four main areas: Business & Family Goal Setting, Farm & Ranch Business Records, Financial Analysis, and Planning.
