Farm Management Education provides a practical study of the farming business for families currently engaged in managing their farms or ranches. The course will help the farm family organize the record keeping system and then analyze their records to determine the financial strengths and weaknesses of the farm business as well as each of the farm enterprises. Training in computerized farm record systems is part of the course. Content deals with the farmer’s own financial information, which remains confidential. Farmers and ranchers learn how to prepare financial statements and use them in day-to-day management. Students may enroll in up to two semesters per year. The course is repeatable.
Farm Management Education is certified to meet the Farm Service Agency borrower training requirements.
A student must be actively engaged in farming or a beginning farmer to enroll.
The mission is to provide lifelong learning opportunities in economic and financial management for families and individuals involved in the farming and ranching business.
